An afternoon at China Camp
Post by sara albers

afternoon china camp aliceandlois.comRecently we spent an afternoon exploring China Camp State Park in San Rafael. China Camp is about a 30 minute drive from San Francisco and is located on the San Pablo Bay. It is filled with amazing views and rich history. You can spend the afternoon exploring the beach, hiking and learning amazing history of the Bay area.

China Camp was a booming Chinese shrimp-fishing village during the 1880s. Nearly 500 people, originally from Canton, China, lived in the village. Most of the shrimp caught were dried and sent back to China. There is a small museum in the park that tells the story of life in the village.

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Marin County.
