School Group Reservation Requests

In-advance reservations are REQUIRED to visit the park and must be requested at least 15 days before the proposed visit date to allow preparation and scheduling by park personnel.

Teachers interested in scheduling a school group visit at Sue-meg State Park can submit a reservation request for either an In-Person Guided-Tour or a Self-Guided Field Trip:

  • In-Person Guided Tours: are facilitated by a California State Park Interpreter who will be present to welcome students, support teachers, and facilitate educational activities in the park. In-Person Guided Tours are about 1 hour long and are only available on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9AM-1PM PST.
  • Self-Guided Field Tripsare facilitated independently by K-12th grade teachers and educators, college professors and faculty, chaperones, and/or youth program leaders without the support of California State Park staff. Please note: Self-Guided Field Trips are NOT available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9AM - 1PM PST, due to ongoing programming in the park.

Educators can make reservations online through the Sue-meg State Park School Group Reservation Request form or by submitting a School Group Reservation Request form (DPR 124) in-person or by mail to the Sue-meg State Park Entrance Kiosk at 4150 Patrick’s Point Dr. Trinidad, CA 95573. Reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. After requests are submitted, park personnel will process and review the request and notify you on whether your request was approved or denied via email correspondence. Approved reservations serve as your record of the reservation and your group's admission to the park.

Please review the Rules and Regulations for School Group Reservations for Sue-meg State Park to inform your School Group Reservation Request.
