China Camp receives NO state funds. It derives all its revenue (revenues that keep the park open) from memberships, day passes, fees for camping, and a few other things.

So your membership fees, while inexpensive, are critical to our survival.

Why Join?

The most important reason to join is to keep your park open - 365 days per year.

This is a Marin treasure, off the beaten path, and in many ways, a secret gem. It's time to renew yourself.


From FREE admission to events to FREE parking to personalized docent tours, enjoy the benefits of membership at a level that is meaningful to you.
