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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our reserved site was situated so that it was nearly impossible to get our trailer backed in. We found a vacant alternate site which was great. Camp staff were friendly and helpful in allowing the switch. On a less positive note, the restrooms had a musty barn odor (to put it mildly), and are long overdue for refurbishing. Same for the showers, which require quarters to boot. A sign said quarters are available at the Visitor's Center. We went there and learned they didn't have change for the showers. After having just come from some Oregon campgrounds, (where water/electricity hookups are standard), we were disappointed in California to have to pay more per night without any of these amenities. Another negative was the evidence of drug use/discarded paraphernalia in the bushes behind our campsite. (I had to explain to my kids that Humboldt County has the most liberal drug laws in the state.) It's too bad, because the location and scenery are spectacular. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful ocean views! Nice campgrounds. No hook-ups but worth the view. Hot showers and hiking trails. Lots to see and do. Sumeg Village is beautiful and a working replica of a Yurok Indian village. Educational! If you visit Trinidad, it's a must see. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As with another California state park that we stayed at on this trip, we found this park in need of a lot of deferred maintenance. The setting is really nice - lots of big evergreens and views of the ocean from the top of a bluff. Some of the sites are set down in the lower forest, but the best sites are up on the bluff where you can see the ocean and it is not so gloomy in the winter. Be aware that if you are here in the winter you will find that the sites are pretty muddy and soggy. Quite a few people living in the park in make-shift camps. I do have to complement the park hosts though who seemed to be really trying to do the best they could given the limited resources they had. We camped here in a Motorhome.
