Pardon us, did somebody say Hot Springs? That’s right! China Camp Campground located on the scenic Chews Ridge is right down the road from the developed Tassajara Hot Springs. Take a soak, then set up camp at the quaint first-come, first-served campsites. What’s more is the camp offers a trailhead into the Ventana Wilderness. Hiking plus soaking = perfect camping trip!
