New Brighton, once known as China Beach, was the site of a Chinese fishing village during the 1870s and 1880s.
The beach is adjacent to Seacliff State Beach and stretches for miles. A bluff-top trail overlooks the beaches and also is dog-friendly.
With 93 acres, more than 100 developed campsites, hookup sites for RVs, a visitor center/museum, campfire center and large parking lot for day use, this beach has remained a favorite destination for generations.
Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach but must be attended at all times. Dogs also are allowed at campsites.

• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
