Yeomet (also, Saratoga and Forks of the Cosumnes) is a former settlement and mining town in Amador County, California. It was at the confluence of Middle and North Forks of the Cosumnes River, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Enterprise.[1] The name, reportedly Native American in origin meaning "rocky falls", reflects the rapids upstream from the place.[1]

A post office operated at Yeomet from 1854 to 1861.[1]
