“as seen in the movie jurassic park!”

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, sea lions, and migrating whales. 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 birdsong at one of three campgrounds. In summer, you can witness a traditional ceremony at Sumêg Village or take a hike led by a docent or professional naturalist. Patrick's Point was also used in the movie Jurassic Park.

If you are looking for a great camping site on the North Coast of California, then look no more. The Patrick Point State Park is the ideal place for you to spend some of the most beautiful camping moments ever.

The scenery of the Park is equally dramatic, spectacular and picturesque. Very few places on Earth fill you with so many varied feelings, no wonder why this place was chosen for some scenes of the block buster movie Jurassic Park.

Tall redwoods, pine trees, wild flowers, mix up with wild life , and great rock formations that fight eternally with the huge power of massive waves!!! What a great place for hiking, bicycling or even just sitting and staring totally speechless at the breath taking surrounding landscapes.

We stayed in site 52 and the back of our campsite had a trail that backed onto a small cliff area with an unbelievable view of the ocean. But there are many campsites to choose from depending on your needs and expectations. But all of them are clean and tidy and definitely not over crowded, giving you the opportunity to spend some quality time in nature while not feeling unsafe for being to isolated!!!

Probably the greatest highlight of our stay there ??? The seductively majestic sunset, probably one of the best sunset spots in the world!!!!

Great place for hiking, landscape photography l. If you are as lucky as me you can spot the Whale. The day when I visit there was three close to land and you didn't need binoculars to spot them.
