China Camp State Park
100 China Camp Village Rd, San Rafael, CA 94901
Charming quiet spot for relaxing and swimming. The history and love being poured into the park by volunteers is wonderful. It brings you back to the basics, and allows complete relaxation. Totally worth a visit if you want to go for a swim and commune with nature yet not be inundated by crowds. Great place to relax and explore historical sites. The history here is impressive, and it is impressive to be immersed in it!
China Camp offers excellent biking , hiking, and bayside walking trails. You can find steep trails, flat trails, medium - single trek - etc - lots of variety! Great for mountain biking! A solid loop will leave you tired but happy. Parking along the street is good to go! Great camping as well - not overcrowded. The walks along the bayside are very nice - with educational signs on local fauna. Huge park. Wonderful place to visit. Captures the history of Chinese shrimp industry.
Awesome. Natural beauty. Historic and cultural lessons to be learned. Many outdoor activities for all. We miss Frank Quan, who, as a member of the Chinese working fishing village that once was here, Frank went off to serve this country in WW2. Frank came "home" to this spot and never left. Being the only person to have been given status as "part of" a designated Historic Site, Frank happily remained here for the duration of his lifetime. (RIP, dear Frank.) Enjoy all that China Camp has to offer you! A great spot!
