We had site #35 and in my opinion it was the best site available. There was room for 4 tents and 2 cars comfortably. The site was private and well set up. This campground is my favorite we have ever visited and we are already planning our next visit. The showers are well kept and clean, but only one of... More

Patrick's Point was just north of our hotel in Trinidad. We hiked the Wedding Rock, Patrick's Point Overlook and Rocky Point Trails. We were treated to beautiful ocean views. We found a banana slug for the first time. A wonderful place to explore God's beautiful creation!

It's the best camping I've ever been to. My family and I come back at least once a year. Tons of hiking trails, private camp sites for tents or trailer, group camp sites, showers, and bathrooms. Whatever type of camping you want to do you'll find it here. Camp in the trees under their canopy in Abalone, or in a... More

My boyfriend and I camped here on our way up the coast and it was by far the best campsite we have ever been to (we live inland in Canada so being near the ocean was amazing). The trees are huge, the campsites are relatively private, quite large, and very clean. We stayed in site 52 and the back of... More

The Pacific ocean provides the backdrop for the Wedding Rock, a location that can be reserved for weddings. It requires a little hiking down and then up. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Let me start by saying where I grew up on the east coast, most state parks are free to drive and walk around in. The 8$ entrance fee and volunteer is why I downrated this park from what would otherwise have been very good. While we eventually found some good hikes, the volunteer at the welcome (visitor) center seemed put... More

Breathtaking views from Wedding Rock. Do hike down to Agate Beach and spend some time combing through the pebbles for "treasure". There is such a variety of colors and sizes of stones. It was foggy the day we went, but beautiful nonetheless. There was a small freshwater stream running into the sand. Take a long walk and savor the sound... More

What a beautiful state park! We only hiked part of Patrick's Point, up to Wedding Rock and out to the wild and rocky shore below it, but what an incredible and gorgeous view! A not to be missed experience! Our 9 and 12 year old grandsons also loved Patrick's Point.

On our way to see the redwood trees of northern California. We stopped to see the rugged coastline in this park, which has an entrance fee. The park has camping sites as well as several trails that go to the shoreline. The trails, all of which are relatively short, are worth the time to see the attractive scenery. The visitors’... More
