Beautiful Wooded Campground with Hikes Available

Beautiful wooded state park (formerly called Patrick's Point... now called Sue-Meg).  Has campgrounds in the woods and at the beach.  Rest rooms and showers were in good condition.  Nice walking trails through the woods to nice views along the coastline and points on interest within the forest.  Be prepared for potential cool and damp weather... a thick fog rolled in during our stay.  Unfortunate that the RV dump station appears permanently closed... but I was told a free one exists at a nearby state Rest Area along Highway 1.  Would stay again.

Overnight Stay

When I booked this camp about a week prior there were only a few spots available. It’s tucked near Humboldt Bay within the Redwoods. It’s an absolutely beautiful campground, but it’s certainly busy! It was foggy and cold near the bay, probably around 57 degrees, but when we pulled in, the trees were protecting us from the Bay Breeze, so it didn’t feel that cold. We stayed next to a family with about 10 people — mostly screaming kids. Other than that, it was lovely and we would stay again!

Was full even in winter

We ended up driving circles looking for a campsite as it was full even in the winter. Beautiful look out points. Plenty of day use areas. The sites are small and treed, the park is well kept. Good place to rest for the night while touring the redwoods!

Best of both worlds

Campsites are in several loops in a lush green forest right next to the ocean. No hookups but pit toilets, trash pickup and water. Fire rings and picnic tables. Clean, beautiful park, sites run the gamut from small to large, including doubles and pull-throughs. Spectacular scenery. Hiking trails in the forest as well as lots of rocky beach. Would def stay again.

Prehistoric Redwoods Oasis

Stunning scenery. The ecology in this park is pristine just as it should be. We could have easily stayed a week here. Campsites are well spaced out so it was quiet. Hiking trails are easy walking on bluff. Beach was filled with fun agates to admire. Our dog was in heaven running off leash on the beach. Great vibe here. Very special place

Beautiful Tidepools and Sunsets

When you go - get a campsite that backs onto the bluff (rim trial) and you can watch the sunset each night from your campsite.

I love the Trinidad area, from the harbor to Moonstone Beach. And the best way to see the area is at Patrick's Point.  You are on the coast, by the beach, so think damp and wind.  the sites (there are several loops) all are a bit different. I like the Abalone Loop because you can get a site on the bluff. You can walk ten steps and watch the sunset each night.

As an added bonus you will hear the seals barking as you go to sleep..

There are great tidepools here.  You need to hike down to them and the tide needs to be right.  There is a native american village to explore, trails to walk and views to take in at every point.

Not sure why, but usually do not have a problem getting a reservation or extending my stay.

Some of the sites have wear - the wood on the tables and food storage lockers shows the effects of the damp air. Just bring a tablecloth and you will be fine. Coin operated showers also show wear but are functional. Usual tabel, fire ring and food sotrage lockers.

Nice Stay

Nice large sites that come equipped with a box for items and a fire ring. Where I stayed is in the midst of very tall trees and lush vegetation around the back of my site. As I walked the park I noticed that there are varying degrees of privacy to the different spaces. Nice hiking with a beautiful view of the ocean. If you are tent camping do not use 0-78, I picked the only site that wasn't level and had to put my tent on the parking pad, which still wasn't bad. Great spot if your in an RV due to the size of the space.

One of my favorite

Patrick's point camp ground is one of my favorite state parks in California. There's plenty of hiking and things to see inside the park including Sumeg village...an old historic site that the Yurok tribe used back in the day. If you want to explore outside there is also plenty to do. However, I lived around this area for 11 years and camped here many times and still haven't seen anything there is to see here. The sites are cheap relative to to other state parks and there is cheap showers and very clean bathrooms.

Campground in the Redwoods

Nice state park near the amazing Redwoods National Park. Oftentimes if the national park is full you can find spots here. Camp itself is nice and overlooks the ocean.

Beautiful forest, dramatic coastline. What's not to like? You can take showers with quarters (often cold). Last time we we the bathrooms were extra filthy, but that's the exception rather than the norm.

Junior ranger programs, hikes, and activities are all throughout the area as well.

Into the Mystic (Trees)

Patrick's Point is always a favorite stop when cruising my way back down the West Coast. It's eerily beautiful to wake up among the Redwoods, where the morning mist hangs low & thick to mute most other camp noises. Facilities are well maintained & most other campers are quite considerate in the grounds. They even have site storage-boxes for your firewood & food. Each site is wonderfully private, enclosed by mystic trees.

If your stamina permits, the descent (and climb back up!) is worth the shakey-leg syndrome some might encounter at the point to the left of the campground. The tide pools are always magical; vultures and hawks float among the cliff sides in the coastal updrafts, the sea breeze carries echoes of the sea lions that dot the inaccessible offshore crags, anemones & barnacles & starfish (oh, my!) decorate the rocky shores.

The one improvement which could be made is more attentive rangers; there are some groups of folks who unfortunately don't understand, or blatantly disregard the necessity of "leave it better than you found it" (let alone the signs declaring how imperative it is to leave inhabitants of the tide pools where they are). We left early due to some people (adults!) terrorizing the tide pools, after reminding them of the sensitive ecosystem.

Overall, definitely a must-stay. Be sure you have what you need for camp cooking- markets aren't too close! Campground fire pits have a cooking grate to pivot over the fire for some good eats, water spigots easily accessible as well.

Large Campsites. Amazing Trees.

When I can't get a spot at Prairie Creek Campground (which is frequently since they book out very far), I can often find one at Patrick's Point, which is almost as lovely. Big, beautiful camp sites that fit two families easily. Cute trails that run throughout. Tons of beautiful trees. Views from the bluff of the ocean. Nice bathrooms. The whole experience is absolutely perfect. Exactly what I want from a camping trip.
