Support Friends of China Camp

Since 2012, China Camp State Park has received no direct funding from state tax revenue to operate and manage the park. As the non-profit park operator, Friends of China Camp depends on your donations and memberships to continue to keep the park open and thriving. We are a community-powered park and we appreciate your tax-deductible support.
