    • Hi Bill,
      Thanks for providing a link to Patrick’s Point State Park campground map. We’ve also included that link on our Patrick’s Point State Park Campground page HERE.

      • William Powell says:

        Are camp sites arable this week??

      • Hi William,
        There are only a few campsites available (most only 1 night, a couple with 2 nights) the week of May 31. Memorial Day weekend is sold out. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and reserve.

  1. Peggy Judkins says:

    Which sites can accommodate a trailer with total length of 27 feet and a small slideout?

    • Hi Peggy,
      The photos of Patrick’s Point State Park should give you a pretty good idea of what sites will fit a 27 foot trailer/RV with a small slide out.
      However, you can also click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation. Sometimes ReserveCalifornia also has specifications for each campsite.

  2. We have camped here twice in the past two years and with everything going on I wanted to ask if there is first come first serve? Or are all sites have to be reserved in advance ?

    • Hi Ingrid,
      The campground is laid out in 3 loops – Penn, Abalone and Agate. Penn (sites 1-15) and Abalone (sites 16-85) are reservable from May through September, and are first-come, first-serve other times of the year. The Agate loop campsites are first come first serve. Because of the Covid restrictions (50% capacity), it may be difficult to get a first-come, firs-serve site, especially around the weekends. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservations for the reservable campsites.

  3. Laura L says:

    We have had a reservation for nearly 6 months in the Agate loop, but above you say that it’s only first come first serve. I have not had any correspondence indicating that our reservation has changed??? We are assuming we still have our same spot starting on the 13th. Would that be an accurate assumption? Thanks.

    • Hi Laura,
      Patrick’s Point State Park campground is open and your reservation is good. During ‘normal’ years, the campsites are reservable May through September. Other times of the year they are first-come, first-serve. Have a great trip!

  4. Janis Richards says:

    We’re planning a trip to Patrick’s Point in October. On the Reserve California website, it looks like some campsites in the Agate campground can be reserved, even though the campground overview says these are first-come first-serve after September. The Abalone campground site reservations are grayed out/unavailable. Is it possible to reserve a specific site in the Agate for a couple of days in October or is is strictly first-come first-serve?

    • Hi Janis,
      Agate Campground / camping area at Patrick’s Point State Park campsites takes reservations throughout the year, the other campgrounds (Abalone, Penn Creek) are first-come, first-serve in October. You won’t be able to reserve a site ahead of time in October. There should be plenty of availability though.

  5. I am researching the possibility of cabin rental in the Agate campground for my elderly mom. Can you provide pictures and descriptions that I can pass on to her?

  6. I have not had any notification indicating that my reservation has changed. We are camping in the Abalone loop. Our reservation is from 9/6/20 to 9/13/20. Is it safe to assume the campgrounds are open? We have a 7 hour drive and want to make sure we are good to go.

    • HI Rhonda,
      According to California State Parks page and Patrick’s Point State Park – it is open (including the campground). If it closes, would contact you regarding your reservation and the closure. You may want to call the park directly to confirm, but if you have not heard – it should be open (and it is open now): (707) 677-3570

  7. Danielle Brown says:

    As of today, 09/10/20, is Patrick’s Point campground open? I have a reservation for 09/14/20, but I’ve seen news headlines yesterday & today that all CA state parks, forests, and campgrounds are closed due to the wildfires.

    • Hi Danielle,
      California State Parks website indicates Patrick’s Point State Park (and campground) are open, but I’d advise calling the park directly to confirm as things are changing with the fire/closures. 707-677-3570

  8. charles schoendienst says:

    I am trying to determine if Patricks Point campground is open. I have reservations for Sunday Sept 13.

    • Hi Charles,
      As of today (September 11), Patrick’s Point State Park is open (including the campground). ReserveCalifornia will contact you if it closes prior to your trip. You can also call ReserveCalifornia to double check at: 800-444-7275

  9. Sean Miller says:

    Just to be clear and sorry if this is redundant, but if Reserve California shows sites as unavailable for October it’s because they are now first-come first-serve and cannot be reserved, correct? Therefore we should be confident that a site would be available during a weekend in October. Is this a reasonable assumption? Thanks.

    • Hi Sean,
      Agate campground/camping loop (campsites 86-124) are available to reserve in October and year round. I’m not positive if the other campsites (Abalone and Penn Creek campsites) are first-come, first-serve or closed due to Covid restrictions. You may want to check with ReserveCalifornia: 800-444-7275.

  10. We’re planning to arrive next Monday. How soon in the morning can we arrive to get a first-come first-serve spot?

    • Hi Jae,
      Unfortunately, Patrick’s Point State Park campground is closed – as are all California State Park and most campgrounds throughout California due to the Covid restrictions.

    • Hi Jae,
      Unfortunately, Patrick’s Point State Park campground is closed – as are all California State Park and most campgrounds throughout California due to the Covid restrictions. The campgrounds probably won’t reopen until mid January at earliest.

  11. Maralee T says:

    I see the comments about the park being closed and we have cabin reservations for next week. I have not received any notice from ReserveCalifornia that our reservations were cancelled. We have a 6 hour drive….hmmmm….

  12. joan clapper says:

    How much are showers and how do you pay for them (coins, cash, credit card?) at Agate beach campground in Patrick’s Point

    • Hi Joan,
      The showers are most likely paid for by tokens (purchased at ranger station/office). Not sure what they cost. You may try calling the park to find out at: 707 677-3570

  13. Hi,
    We are coming for an upcoming July weekend. Are we allowed both a small RV and a tent on our Agate Site #89? 4 or 5 people
    And 2 vehicles?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Shirley,
      You can have up to 2 vehicles and 8 people at campsite #89. An RV counts as one vehicle. An overflow parking area is available. Also, you can have both a small RV and a tent. Have a great time!

  14. Hi, we are a scout group looking for group camping. There is only one group site available. Do you have recommendations for individual sites that are ideal for group camping if group site is not available? Thank you.

  15. We have a reservation coming up this weekend but will have at least 2 and possibly 3 vehicles since our group is coming from different parts of the state. I see there is an option to pay an fee for an additional vehicle but is there accomodations for a third? For example, is there overflow parking? Trying to figure out if we will need to plan to consolidate somehow prior to arrival. Thanks.

    • Hi LK,
      They have been allowing campers to park a 3rd vehicle ($) in the day-use parking area, but not sure if that has changed. You may want to call the park to confirm: 707 677-3570

  16. You list site 101 in Patrick’s Point/Sue-meg as a favorite site but that site is not on the official map or the reservation website. Do you know if campsites have been renumbered?

    • Hi Heather,
      There are some campsites that are first-come, first-serve and not listed on the reservation website. Campsite #101 does exist. You can see where it is located (Agate Loop) on the official State Park campground map (click on the ‘campground map’ button).

  17. On the reservation site many of the sites are listed as Walk-in only. Does this mean first come first serve or is it walk-in tent sites only?

    • Hi Dean,
      Good question. The campsites “walk-in” campsites are reservable (not first come first serve). A better description should be “walk-to” (that’s what we try and use). The tent campsites require a bit of a walk to get to the campsite.

  18. I was hesitant to book lot #114 because on the reserve california map it only shows up when zooming out and appears to be on the far left of agate campground. Is it actually further out or is this just a bug on the page? Also would you recommend all of the sites for tent camping?
