Sue-Meg State Park
Indigenous Culture on the North Coast at Sue-meg Village
Thirty miles north of Eureka, Sue-meg State Park sits on a lushly forested promontory beside the Pacific Ocean. The one-square-mile park is densely packed with potential adventures. On a short walk around the perimeter of the park, you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools, and walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees as you peer out at seals, sea lions, and migrating whales. In the park’s interior, you’ll find a visitor center, a native plant garden, and a reconstructed Yurok plank-house village. Sue-meg Village was built in collaboration between State Parks and the Yurok Tribe as a place for Yurok people to revitalize their culture and is used today for education, ceremony, and healing. Our interpreters are Native descendants that continue their relationship in this significant space, by offering both virtual and in-person programs that share the story of indigenous history and culture to students statewide.
