The China Camp State Park is a historical site and state park in San Rafael, California. It is best known for its outdoor recreation opportunities, but there is also a lot of history in the site.

Originally a settlement for Chinese immigrants back in the 1880s, the China Camp State Park was once home to a Chinese shrimp-fishing village. The settlers, who are mostly from Canton, China, thrived on catching fish which they dry and send back to China or to the other Chinese settlements in the country. A museum is found at the site chronicling the story of the fishing village.

Aside from this, the China Camp State Park is also popular for its mountain biking and hiking trails, as well as for its scenic views.
