Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Named in honor of the nineteenth century Chinese shrimp-fishing from which it was built atop of, China Camp in the San Pablo Bay is as much a campground as it is a historic capsule in time. (Some 500 or so immigrants from Canton, China, once lived in the now repurposed maritime community.) Populated with thirty-four primitive tent-only sites, China Camp campground serves as mean to unplug from the every-connected, white-noise-filled world in which we now find ourselves in. And with a bevy of trails weaving through the campgrounds mix of intertidal salt marshes, meadows, and oak habitats, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to pick up your smartphone. Should you be in tow with a furry friend (or two), the group campsite is the only dog-friendly one of the available thirty-four; the day-use area, however, is pet-friendly as well.
