Thirty miles north of Eureka, Patrick’s Point State Park sits on a lushly forested promontory beside the Pacific Ocean.

The one-square-mile park is densely packed with potential adventures. On a short walk around the perimeter of the park you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools, walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees as you peer out at seals, sea lions, and migrating whales. In the park’s interior, you’ll find a visitor center, a native plant garden, a re-constructed Yurok plank-house village. You can picnic, or wake up to birdsong at one of three campgrounds. In summer you can witness a traditional ceremony at Sumêg Village or take a hike led by a docent or professional naturalist.

You don’t have to go far to find something fascinating at Patrick’s Point. 

Morning at Patrick’s Point

Weather

40–65°F. in summer, 35–55° in winter.

Night and morning fog almost all year. Sometimes it doesn't lift for days at a time in summer. Beautiful, clear days are more common in spring and fall.

Rainfall averages about 60 inches a year, most of it between October and April.

Rules & Notifications

 Dogs are permitted only in the campground and day-use areas, not on the trails or on the beach. They must be kept in an enclosed vehicle or tent at night, and on a controlled six-foot leash during the day.
 Swimming is not advised. The ocean off Patrick's Point is cold and dangerous. Please keep an eye on small children, as there are unexpected holes in the underwater sand and the undertow can be very strong. Occasional "sleeper" waves appear unexpectedly and can be much larger than typical waves.
 Please do not pick wildflowers or mushrooms.
 Don’t Feed the Wildlife and Keep Your Camp Crumb Clean!
 Lock food in a hard-topped car or in a car trunk. Campsite cupboards and ice chests are not bear proof. Store food in airtight containers, or wrap it carefully.
