Description Suggest change

Sue-meg State Park, formerly known as Patrick's Point State Park, is one of the climbing Jewels of the Redwood Coast. The rock is well featured, solid and enjoyable to climb. Patrick's Point was one of the first cragging spots in this region and has a history of ascents dating back at least 4 decades.

There is a clean, well kept campground in the park with sites available for two cars. Day use is $8.00 per vehicle.

This campground is a great place to stay as it is also within a 15 minute drive to Moonstone Beach and Houda Point.

The routes are in four main areas: Ceremonial Rock, Wedding Rock, Mussel Rock, and Pacific Ocean Wall.

Getting There Suggest change

From Arcata drive north on Hwy 101 22 miles to Patrick's Point Drive exit. It is about 1/2 mile to the park entrance. When approaching from the north look for the exit about 6 miles north of Trinidad.
