I dropped by this spot by before my lil sisters wedding in Sonora, CA on the weekend of New years eve 2015.
Right off the 120/montezuma road, there are about 1/2 dozen other sites/ Ghost Towns such as Montezuma, Jefferson (although only markers remain) and the only known cira 1800's Jesuit Shrine in No California in a 4 mile radius.
Parking right off the freeway a good 1/2 can be had walking around the old Main Street. The Pioneer Cemetery is right across the freeway where Main Street dead ends. Another 30mins to 1hr can be spent wandering the tombstones there.
Funny fact, there is till a functioning post office as Chinese Camp still has a tad over 100 ppl as a permanent population. One can buy a souvenir postcard and sen it with the Postmarked stamp.
