We liked this little park - it's a great location for visiting Redwood NP. Pull-thru sites were a bit narrow, but the green flowering plants growing on the fences between the sites made for nice barriers. Flowers blooming everywhere and a picturesque little pond made this a pretty place and helped us overlook the dated (but very clean) bathrooms. Office staff was very friendly and provided lots of helpful information about the area. The speed bumps were obnoxious; they could take half of them out and there would still be too many. Other than that, it was a nice place and we would stay again. - Jolly Out There

Small park near Patricks Point State Park, North of Trinidad. We got a pull thru and did not have to unhook 30' trailer. Back In's appeared mostly small. Pricy! Well landscaped with abundant flowers. Pretty park but overpriced. - ebaldy

Small park in the woods that is very clean. Showers and toilets are older, but well kept and clean. Laundry room is clean. There is a trail across the street to the State park and a nice walk to the cliffs over the beach. Trinidad looks like a nice town and we would have liked to stay longer and explore some more. - bill1443

This is a great little dry camping park right on the Big Lagoon. Emphasis on "LITTLE"...big rigs need not apply. The sites range from tiny in the trees to huge and right on the lagoon so you can launch a canoe or kayak right from your site. Even though some of the sites are large, the road around the camp loop is very narrow and tough to negotiate even with a (large) pickup camper like ours. Lots of trees for shade at pretty much all of the sites. We were there on a weekday in late June and it was almost full in early afternoon. I would suggest giving this one a try as early in the day as possible and have an alternative in mind since it seems to be very popular. No dump station either, so plan accordingly. At $20 ($18/senior) plus $2 per dog (what's up with always charging extra for the dogs, California?!) it's a steal for a waterfront campground in CA, IMHO. We would definitely stay there again. - Pdxjoanne

We have stayed here many times in the last 40 years (used to be a member park). Enjoy staying out front and seeing the elk herd wander around. Close to the beach.
The sites are gravel with grass between the sites and ample space between sites. Used 30 amp and it worked fine.
No problem with the roads in the park. We will stay here again. - TeamElk-Rib

We chose this park because I wanted to walk the beaches to look for agates and this park was near Agate beach. I have to echo many of the other reviewers' comments and only gave it an overall rating of 5 because of the Elk.
- The park is run down. What once was probably a beautiful property is certainly no longer worthy of the word "Resort."
- The woman who ran the office appeared confused and easily flustered.
- While the "wooded" section of the park was beautiful, half of it was occupied by full-time residents with run-down units.
- The field section was just that; a field. And while the Elk are amazing to see they leave poop everywhere so walker beware! (I posted a picture of the Elk grazing in and around the camping area).
On a positive note, we did have great reception with Verizon while our friend's AT&T service was nonexistent. And, we took a lovely 1 1/2 mile walk to the beach and did find a few agates.
If you want to see the Elk, which is spectacular, or walk the beach, this might be a good place to stay if you don't have too high of expectations for the park. - Ree Klein

This is the most difficult to review RV Park I have run across in over six years of travel. It is by no means a "resort" but staying here has some unique benefits. First the good...yes their are elk present either actually in the park itself or very nearby. There is a pasture full of trail horses adjacent to the park. This provided great entertainment for the grandkids. Roads within the park are mostly gravel and easy to navigate with any size rig. Sites are large and the amount of space between them provides a degree of privacy. Now the not so good...on the one day I visited them, the bathrooms were filthy. Sites are old gravel that needs to be renewed. This made leveling more of a challenge than it needed to be. Many long term residents who seemed to be friendly but some of the rigs were dilapidated at best. Price was high compared to similar parks but this may be the norm for this high cost area. I believe the park has a new owner. With a lot of hard work this park can become a destination but right now it has a way to go. Unless improvements are made I would probably look for a different park in the area. - CG Pilot

This park was OK. Great location but very old conditions. I only stayed one night and wasn't too impressed. It is close to all the beautiful sites of Trinidad. - Jay9259

Gentleman at check in was very friendly but this was not good RV park for our purposes. It is almost exclusively permanent RV's and park models with a handful of spots for overnight or short term stays. Interior roads were fine except for a couple of speed bumps angled to feel really huge; site was level and large enough but not big by any means. The dump was flooded out when we were there in January. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were OK, not overly modern or clean but acceptable. We wouldn't stay there again, we would try the Emerald Forest just down the street. It looks more like a campground than a mobile home park. - mahaffee

Patrick's Point is a beautiful park, with many scenic vistas, great bike roads (for short rides), wonderful tide pools and beaches. The campground is a bit sketchy, with many of the sites being small and narrow. Some are literally carved out from the overgrown brush making them more like single car garages than campsites. We stayed in one of the "premium" sites, which have some kind of view and more space. Ours had a distant view of Agate Beach and was private on three sides, but faced the day use parking lot, which was not really a problem. I would stay here again for the park but it is worth getting here on a weekday morning to have a chance to get a premium site. Our rate reflects the premium site cost minus the senior discount. - MrSunshine

Old park but still good. We backed into a "water view" site but the view was barely visible through the dense trees. Although we could hear the seals barking during the night! We paid cash and got a "discount" of $5 off the credit card rate. Quiet park worked just fine for us for overnight. No amenities to speak of and $30 seemed a bit steep. Overpriced, but if we had to, I'd stay here again. There's not much else to choose from in the area. - RMLincoln

Breathtaking, beautiful park with large sites nestled in Giant Redwoods and Ferns. Dry camping. Clean coin shower. Dump station. If you have not camped here you should! You will need reservation. Park is on cliffs above beach. Many very private sites. Not too far from Trinidad.. Hiking trails above and down to beach paved roads for biking. Not far from lovely Trinidad, Redwoods, Roosevelt Elk herds & an Indian Casino. - galley

Sounds of the sea are the waves and the sea lions. Pull through site are very close. My slide came out almost over the sewer connection for the site next to me. It was easy to get in and out of the pull through for our 39 ft 5th wheel. There are two levels with back in sites up top and some back in sites on the bottom level. Owners are very helpful. I would stay again. - PJ's Park and Play

Small park. Our site backed up to a deck and a view through the trees of the ocean and a large rock covered with seals or sea lions. You could hear the surf and the seals barking. We were in 53d. Cable didn't work, and they came right over and fixed it. Trinidad is a darling little town to visit. Stayed here to visit the Redwood forest. We would stay here again. - User2475

We thought this was the best RV park in the area. Wanted FHU in the Redwoods and that is what we got. The area is gorgeous. Far enough away from sketchy Eureka. Bathrooms clean, dog friendly. Staff was OK... had a question about laundry- i.e dry time ( important when travelling with a family) and got some attitude from Mgr. Very strange. 1 washer/ 1 dryer. Spot 90 is good pull thru spot on the end.
We will come back. - MrsWeller

Convenient park for visiting Trinidad. Located in large, second growth redwoods but dusty at times. Campsites are a bit odd shaped and squeezed in due to tree layout. Wifi was acceptable. There was only one shower/toilet room for about 20 spaces in our area. - Tesoro

Bathrooms were dirty, didn't always have toilet paper and needed a good paint job. The sites were nice. Trinidad Bay is beautiful and the town is cute. - fifth wheeler

ABSOLUTELY NO MANAGEMENT! Poorly maintained park with unleashed dogs running throughout the park. Animal waste in the roadways and trailer spaces. Dirty restrooms, no toilet paper, filthy showers, poorly maintained roadways. Tijuana Mexico has cleaner campgrounds. Two big thumbs down! - AvidRVer
