Scenes for Steven Spielberg's movie "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" were filmed nearby at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Patrick's Point State Park was the setting where the motor home was pushed over the cliff; Fern Canyon was where a character was pursued and devoured by a pack of little Compsygnathus dinosaurs, and private land in Fieldbrook hosted the famous "Dinosaur Round-Up."     Continued.
