Nice little walk with views. Looks like a decent place to camp but I'll never hike here again. It would be good with kids.

I used to come here almost everyday and watch the sunset. A great place to hike, camp, picnic, sightsee, etc. If you don't mind the extra 0.3 mile walk, you can drive past the entrance and find free parking.

The beautiful thing about Patrick's Point is that for one 'day-use' fee ($8.00) you can have an entire day of exploring new things! There are several beach accesses, trails, big rocks to climb, and dense forest to comb. Dogs are not allowed, so if you are looking for a 'dog' friendly place, look elsewhere. Note, to avoid the day-use fee, simply park on Patrick's Point Drive, before the entrance, and there is a short hike through the forest to all of the trail-heads.

Very Beautiful walk.
Dogs are only allowed on paved trails in the State Park. This trail is not paved and therefore dogs are not allowed, leashed or not (just as the first picture shows).

It is great to bike around the park and then bike up and down to the beach, or just explore.
