China Camp State Park is situated on the southern end of San Pablo Bay. This lovely recreation area is of great historical importance and is built around the remains of a 19th century Chinese-American shrimping village. Not only does this park have a fascinating past, it has gorgeous grounds with a variety of habitats.
There are there are over a dozen miles of trails in the park. But, unfurtunately, dogs are not allowed to use them. So if you want to hike, leave your pooch with another member of your paw-ty. Your pal will be happy to know that leashed four legged visitors are welcome to explore the beach. Stroll along the water’s edge so your pup can gaze out into the bay. They can also dip their paws into the water to cool off. Be sure to always have a clean-up bag or two handy and pick up whatever your pooch puts down.
Pups can also enjoy the campgrounds. So if you’re up for a night or two of ruffing it, bring some sleeping bags and a tent. All campsites are hike-in and range from 50 to 300 yards away from the parking lot. Be prepared to carry all your gear to your campsite. After a day on the beach, your furry friend will love relaxing by the fire and listening to ghost stories.
Since doggos are welcome to join their people in the picnic areas, pack a sandwich and stick around for lunch. Just don’t forget to bring a biscuit or two for your furry companion. If travelling with your whole pack, consider reserving one of the three group sites. They include primitive restrooms, barbecues and plenty of tables. Quan Bros. snack shop is open on the weekend. This pawsome place sells a furrific variety of food and beverages.
Your pup will agree, a day at China Camp State Park is time well spent!
