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, and walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees as you peer out at seals, seal lions and migrating whales.
The Patrick's Point State Park Visitor Center is a must stop for any visitor to this wonderful seaside and forested park.
In the park's interior, you'll find a visitor center, a native plant garden and a reconstructed Yurok plank-house village. You can picnic or wake up to bird songs at one of three campgrounds. In summer, you can witness a traditional ceremony at Sumeg Village or take a hike led by a docent or professional naturalist.
