So many places to walk, stroll, enjoy. Just a pristine piece of shoreline with surprises around every turn.

“Save this park!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Unique, picturesque and historic. Warmest beach and water in marin, but beware of the small jellyfish which swarm seasonally. Great place to bring your kayak.

“Perfect spot on the SF bay”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a slice of heaven where you can just hang out by the water. No real charge except for the parking. Worth the few bucks.

“best biking”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The trails in China Camp have to be the best off-road biking in Marin, and even including southern Sonoma county. And to go along with great trails, the scenery is wonderful, with views of the bay from several places.

“Marin's Tucked Away Gem”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

You will not be sorry if you choose to explore this wonderful, tucked away area of San Rafael that offers single track for the mountain biker, miles of hiking trails, and hill top views that make one sigh in relief that such a place is so close by and so accessible. Park outside the entrance, and you will not have to pay a fee.
