Olumpali (also, Olompalis) is a former settlement in Marin County, California.[1] It was located 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Petaluma.[1] Its site now lies within the Olompali State Historic Park.

The name comes from the Coast Miwok language and likely means "southern village" or "southern people".[2][3] The Coast Miwok had inhabited a site within the State Historic Park continuously from as early as 6000 BCE.[3] Olompali had been a main center in 1200, and might have been the largest native village in Marin County.[2]
