A large part of the park was closed for storm clean up and repairs however there were still more trails that we could manage in one day. We saw 2 whales close to shore from the rim trail as well as other amazing vistas. After a picnic lunch we hiked down to Agate Beach to collect rocks (no patience to ferret out agates). Some of the trails are steep and a little slippery. We utilized our walking sticks (we are seniors ;)). There was no attendant at the entrance booth and the info center does not have cash, so make sure that you have the appropriate money for the entrance fee.

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!

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.

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 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.

We entered the state park only for day access, specifically to check out Agate Beach. We arrived in the afternoon and started down the steep, winding trail with steep steps at the bottom. From there, it is a decent walk to the water's edge. Be aware that there is no sand on this beach at all - just tiny rocks, which make it VERY difficult to walk on. We tried with good water shoes and we tried barefoot. Rocks are just big enough to hurt when barefoot, so we opted for water shoes. Walking on the wet part was actually harder than the dry, as feet just kept sinking into the rocks. We ended up mostly sitting on the slight drop off a few feet from the water to dig through rocks, hoping to find an agate. I had read mixed reviews on this - something about dredging a while back changing the rocks that wash up. These were mostly all the size of peas or smaller - unsure if any we found were actually agates, though still very beautiful. We didn't stay long as the water is rough and there's not really anything else to see. We enjoyed our morning at Trinidad State Beach much more. The bonus here was at the top of the trail, there are bathrooms as well as a water pump to rinse off feet! Overall, glad we checked it out, but enjoyed other areas better.

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.

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!

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.

We spent several days at Avenue of the Giants. What else was there to do that would not be that far away? We found Patrick State Park on the coast. This was our first time being this far north in California. It was amazing to see how different the coat line is then just a few hours south.
There are structures on how the Native Americans lived back in the day. Fascinating!
Unlike the coast line just north of San Francisco, the trees come right up to the ocean.
There are trails to walk and outlooks to view the Pacific. I'm told during certain times of the year this is a great place to see whales. Maybe next time. Allow yourself a few hours for the visit.
