Wilder Ranch State Park is a California State Park on the Pacific coast near Santa Cruz, California. Habitats include chaparral, grassy hills, and wetlands. A historic ranch includes an 18th century adobe and a farmhouse originally built in the 19th century. Dogs are prohibited.

In 1996 the state acquired the adjacent Gray Whale Ranch, which extends from Wilder Ranch all the way to the University of California, Santa Cruz campus and the town of Felton, California. This new land became part of Wilder Ranch. Trails were added following the acquisition, but in 2002 Gray Whale Ranch was closed to public access.
