Also enjoy the spectacular scenery and photo opportunities. I also paint seascapes and Patrick's Point is great at low tide. Highly recommend...

We enjoyed our time visiting this state park, but be prepared to do a lot of hiking. In order to see the beach you have to walk down a long path with a railroad tie ladder at the very end in order to actually get on the beach. However, my son, husband and I were able to get down there... More

We were vacationing in the Redwood National and State Forest, and chose to take the Patrick's Point hiking trail one morning. It was gorgeous! The hike was relatively easy for my 6 and 9 year-old, and for me, and I'm a 45 year-old woman who is not physically fit. There were some stairs and some uphill and downhill hiking, (and... More

Great scenery and a lot to do. Spent many hours at Agate beach searching through the rocks. Did a few hikes and enjoyed the view. Can spend hours here! Park ranger was very helpful also.

All year around the park is exceptionally picturesque. However in Spring and Summer the leopard lilies near wedding rock are like something straight out of a fairy tale. Interspersed in the meadow they are like little flames in the grass. When the moon is full there is nothing quite as striking.

Most sites are too small for any motor home over 24 ft. Our site was #103, and it was so unlevel it took 18" of blocks to get the vehicle level. I will not stay here again. One saving grace was the lovely ocean view from our site.

Beautiful scenery, but the park can get really crowded when the weather is nice. Screaming kids always ruin the serenity of a place for me... ;) Also it's a surprise you have to pay to enter this park when Redwood National is 10min away and totally free.

This park is an amazing nature spot. The views are priceless, and there is wildlife all around. A few years ago when we came we saw whales, seals, and even a river otter! (My favorite animal, which I'd never seen in the wild before!) Wedding Rock and Lookout Point offer great views and sometimes even whale sightings. I always see... More

My family used to vacation here when I was little and then I just recently went back with my boyfriend and his new tent. We explored most of the area, watched a sunset from the tide pools, and had a campsite right next to the ocean. It was amazing, and we can't wait to go back.
