My husband and I had only enough time to picnic and enjoy the hiking trail. There are picnic tables in a shaded grove just up from the ranch lot. Stop at Glen Ellen Village Market & Deli to get all you need for a meal....More

If you aren't familiar with Jack London, you should be! And if you are, you will enjoy this Park even more. It has about 30 miles of mixed use trails, and never seem overcrowded.

I only wish the full park had been dog friendly. Well worth the entry fee. The buildings are amazing relics, the information posts are perfect although the maps were a little difficult to follow

The Park has Jack London's former home open for visitor. The are many photos, artifacts and background info about Jack London. You may be surprised to learn how much an environmentalist he was

This is a beautiful place to visit with an interesting history. Don,t miss the wolf house. This is a nice break from the winery tours and if you can catch opera under the stars it is worthwhile

Need time to enjoy all that the park has to offer. We were able to enjoy the park and a musical production in the historical building. It was a great evening.

We really enjoyed visiting this state park. Great visitor center and gift shop, and really nice walk on the grounds we loved seeing the house Jack London built, or the remains of it, and walking along the pathways. Lovely afternoon.

We loved our self guided walking tour of Happy Walls house, the main house, farm buildings and park itself. What an amazing couple! A great legacy and a true 'call of the wild'. Don't miss it!
