  • This was our first time to Patrick’s Point, but definitely not our last. Beautiful lookouts to hike to and over look the ocean. Some of the steps on the trail are rough and in need of rebuilding, but....  more »
  • Wow - this place is amazing. Patrick's Point State Park is located on one of California's most beautiful stretches of coastline. Must-see if you are in the area, and the sunsets are gorgeous.  more »
  • One of my favorite places! The camping here is so great. The views are incredible. There's so much to do! You could spend a week here and not get bored. Highly recommend! If you're going to camp though, you need to book way in advance!
  • Absolutely beautiful location! It is a beautiful beach with easy access. It is never very crowded nor is it ever dirty. It is a great place to go exploring and to bring your pups! It is easy to locate from the road with lots of parking spots. This is by far one of California’s prettiest and cleanest beaches. You should put this place on your bucket list for sure! Also lots of cool seashells to find!
