Lovely, lovely park! We very much enjoyed the tide pools and beach combing at Agate Beach. Wedding rock provided some adrenaline because we chose to climb around on it. However, you can simply enjoy the overlooks without the fear of falling.

We went to Patrick's Point on our way to the Redwoods from San Francisco specifically for the Agate Beach, and we were not disappointed. The "steps" to the Agate beach pretty much have suffered erosion and is more of a rope ladder at best and is treacherous. However, if you are able to walk on the Agate beach, you are... More

This is where the forest meets the sea, and coupled with beautiful walks, camping, sea lions, and good birding, it is unparalleled for getting a cross-section sampling of Humboldt. Don't miss Agate Beach, altho the path to walk down is a bit treacherous and not for those with physical limitations. Parts of it wash out or can be very slippery.

I differ from many other reviewers. Yes, this state park is pretty, but at $8 per car it is in my opinion too pricey for one person. You can walk in for free, but it's a long way to the beach area. There are so many other locations within the general area that are also very pretty -- and free!... More

Lovely ocean views and a nice place to walk. We wandered through the park late in the afternoon mostly just to stretch our legs. Staff were working hard to improve what I thought were already excellent gravel trails. There is a small charge for your car, but it's good for the day in other parks, so if you were spending...

After days of excursions from Trinidad to Orrick, redwoods, etc, we took a spontaneous turn into this park which was so close to home base, we assumed it was noting special. WRONG!!! It was amazing. One of the best photos of our trip was from there. It's so special that we've decided on our next trip to camp there rather... More

Gorgeous well-maintained trails, interesting visitor center, beautiful coastline, and campsites that are not on top of each other. Fabulous experience and a very special campground!

The ranger at the entrance was upbeat, friendly & very helpful in guiding us to trails she thought we'd enjoy in spite of the rain. Hiking just the one trail out to The Wedding Rock was well worth the stop.

My wife and I spent a day in here during our road trip thought Northern California to Astoria. The trails are very easy and I really recommend everyone doing it, specially the one to the point. It was a sunny day so we took really nice pictures. Really worth a visit.

The Rim Trail is one of the best hikes along the Northern California coast, made easily accessible in this user-friendly state park--compact and easy to navigate. Several awe-inspiring views of a rugged coastline. The many offshoot trails, such as Wedding Rock or Rocky Point, offer views of rare beauty. Absolutely worth the visit!
