Patrick’s Point State Park

A gorgeous beach, a Native American history lesson, and a storied rock formation

Save to my Account

There is so much to do at this redwood beach park, you’ll have to schedule another vacation to do it all. Hiking, camping, biking, exploring a re-creation of an Indian village, picnicking, beachcombing, walking through a native plant garden. Plus, the dense spruce, fir, and hemlock stand guard over the dramatic coastline and make for a breathtaking view.

Most come here for the beach, with Abalone and Agate being local favorites. Campers, book tent or RV sites well in advance for busy summer weekends.

Also a notable destination is Wedding Rock, where for over a hundred years locals have come to get married, or get some local juju to inspire a marriage.

Don’t miss the reconstructed Yurok village. This includes traditional-style family houses, a sweathouse, a redwood canoe, and a dance house. Sumeg is the place name of a former Yurok seasonal fishing camp, not a permanent village. The trail through the native plant garden leads you to the village.
