Like a lot of the other travelers, we love Patrick's Point state park. Easy to get to off of the 101. The park has hiking, camping, beach access, some native history and some of the best views on the coastline. Day use price is reasonable ($8) per car and walk-ins are free (we stayed in a place where we could walk to here).

Been here a couple of times over the years and always say we want to camp here but have not done that yet. Campground is pretty extensive. Bathroom facilities are well maintained. Lots of parking. The rangers that we have talked to were friendly.

Full of trees - even down to the shoreline. There is a path you can walk on that hugs the hillside above the water. Take the trail up to lookout rock to get an amazing view of the water or take the trail down to Agate beach (although this was closed the last time we were here). We have seen sea birds, sea lions, seals and some whales from the path.

Bring some water, food, dress warm (can get foggy and windy here) and enjoy the day. The times we have been there, it has not been very crowded. Enjoy a day here or better yet stay a few nights.

We came across this place by accident and decided to stop. So glad we did. Admission was only $8 and there are several places to park and hike to views. This is one of the prettiest state parks I've ever been to. The views are phenomenal and the scenery is breathtaking. It was so worth the small admission fee. They also have a visitor center with a few souvenirs. There wasn't much there but you might be able to find something. This is a definite must stop when driving through the redwoods.

Our main purpose was visiting Redwood National and State Parks and ended up here for 3 nights cause other place were all booked out. So happy we did. We went at the end of May and were in the Penn Circle campground, Site 2. The bathrooms were kept clean in this area. They are single stalls with toilet/sink in each stall which is nice. The locks didn't always work. The property seemed well maintained. Lots of little walks around the campground with good ocean views and lookout points. There is only a small wooden box with a latch for storing food. I think only the campground by the beach has the metal food lockers. We were told it was fine to store food in our car which we did. I really liked that for (most) of the sites there was vegetation between each sites. Moreso on outer ring sites than inner rings. Overall outer ring sites semeed spaced out a bit better and more private. However, you're still close to neighbors (noise wise.) Location wise it's nice and easy access to some of the other parks and hte nearby town is only about 7 minutes away. It has a gas station and a nice market that has everything you need. We saw a few mosquitoes on 1 night but never had an issue with getting bit, but not sure if that's always the case.

This park wasn't on my radar until I decided to make Trinidad by camping base.
It's just down the road from our campground, so we visited around lunch time.

$8 to get in. The fee booth was staffed. The visitor center was open, but the exhibits, such as they were, were taped off. You can see them anyway. Very small gift shop. There was some brochures. Bathroom around the corner.

We drove from scenic view to scenic view. I recommend walking through Sumeg Village. There's information boards.
There's beach access at Agate Beach, Wedding Rock & Palmers Point. All the trails to the beach involve a steep hike down (then up!).

If you've always wanted to climb up & around a sea stack, hike the Wedding Rock Trail. It's fabulous!

There's a very popular campground. They have showers, but no electricity.

I recommend checking this beautiful state park out. It's a wonderful place to spend a morning or all day!

So glad I choose to come to this park! I went down to Palmer's Point tide pooling, walked a trail, drove the whole park, and spent time on Agate Beach looking for stones. Loved every part of it! A very beautiful spot, the beaches are totally different but both gorgeous and fun to walk. Be aware that it is many steps, hills, more steps, more hill to go up and down to the beaches. Totally worth it in my opinion, but some visitors seemed surprised.

We had a great time walking the Patrick’s Point Rim Trail and splitting off onto the mini attached locations such as Mussel Rocks, Patrick’s Point, Wedding Rock, etc. There are a ton of places for beautiful photos - wedding rock was my favorite. Since the walk is along a campground there is parking and restrooms available.

We wanted to visit this park but just didn't have a clear day. We paid $8 entrance and did hike to Wedding Rock. We wish we could have seen more out into the ocean, but the coastline was still quite dramatic near the shore. There are trails down to the beach area which are steep. The Suemeg village was interesting to see before leaving the park. We could have spent more time here but the weather just wasn't cooperating.

We did hike down the steep grade to Agate Beach for stones. The tide was out and the beach was wide. Going down the approximately last 15 steps over placed stone/wood edging was the most treacherous of the entire trek. The beach was fun to see the different colored agate stones.

The beach is long and breathtaking. The ferns, trees and terrain is awsome. Also love the camping grounds area and Indian village. I have had the greatest experience in both my RV and in a tent. The whole area including McKinleyville was so relaxed and enjoyable. People and park rangers all were very very nice! I felt like I really wasn't in California at all. It felt like heaven! I highly recommend this area to good people. Avenue of the Giants as well. This is the BEST of California's treasure!

This is a delightful State Park with great spots for a picnic, camping, and hiking. Also enjoy great ocean views - wedding rock and Patrick’s Point. Day use fee is $8.00 and a bargain at that. Enjoy clean restrooms.

We spent hours at the tide pools. Lots of starfish, crabs, urchins and other fascinating life. Including sea lions sunning on rocks. A very long walk straight down and even longer straight up to get back up for said pools. Staff was good about providing low tide information at check. Ask for roll of quarters for showers. Campgrounds had clean showers and bathrooms. I'd love to visit again.
