Olumpali (also, Olompalis) is a former settlement in Marin County, California. It was located 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Petaluma. 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". The Coast Miwok had inhabited a site within the State Historic Park continuously from as early as 6000 BCE. Olompali had been a main center in 1200, and might have been the largest native village in Marin County.
