“as seen in the movie jurassic park!”

The park's dense forests of spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder stretch over an ocean headland with lovely wildflower-festooned meadows. A dramatic shoreline ranging from broad sandy beaches to sheer cliffs that rise high above the Pacific Ocean offers great opportunities to explore tide pools, search for agates and driftwood, watch whales, sea lions and brilliant sunsets.

The park offers several miles of hiking trails, a recreated Yurok Village, a native plant garden, visitor center, three family campgrounds, 2 group camps, a camp for hikers and bicyclists, and 3 group picnic areas.

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.
