Chinese Camp CA Community Information by CENTURY 21 Wildwood Properties, Inc

A Small, Sleepy Village

Chinese Camp is a sleepy village located at the junction of Highway 49 north and Highway 120 west. The population today is about 150 but during the gold rush it is estimated that 5,000 called it home. Chinese Camp is north of Lake Don Pedro with its many camp grounds, water sports and fishing. You can even rent a house boat to take in the lake at your leisure. In California, foreign vegetation has taken over much of the open range and foothills. The Red Hills were set aside as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern or a “biological island” by the federal government. This area is only one mile southwest of Chinese Camp on Red Hills Road. Visitors can see most of the Red Hills on various loop trails, which total about 17.3 miles. Hiking in the Red Hills Management Area is easy on open footpaths and gentle slopes. Other activities include wildflower viewing, nature study, horseback riding, and amateur prospecting. To protect the fragile resources of the area, in 1991 target shooting and off-road vehicle use were prohibited.
