We enjoyed the peaceful walk back to the ruins, and the plaques & brochure with information about Jack London. It was a lovely way to spend the morning. The story and the ruins left us in awe of the man...what an amazing vision & creativity....More
Great place for any literary fan to get a glimpse into the life of an iconic American author. The hiking trails are moderate and totally worth it. We've been twice and will go back. The Wolf House is phenomenal in its breadth, scale, and tragedy....More
Came here on new years day and was fortunate to join the guided tour of the museum and the Wolfe's run cottage. It was a glorious sunny windless morning to hike a bit, and learned so much about Jack and Charmian London, their lives and...More

Jack London lived his life to the fullest. I include his quote regarding the value of life. The park contains a huge amount of history of the farming in the times, what he tried to cultivate (prickly pear cactus), and where he lived worked and...More
We spent hours here last Sunday hiking all the trails. Very dog friendly , on leash. Interesting ruins and history. We especially liked the "Pig Palace" and the "Wolf House" ruins. Don't miss it! Do watch for ticks.
This is a real treasure. The Jack London Museum, which was under renovation when we were there in October, is very interesting. It is a small museum, but takes you through London's life. There is something eerie as well about the ruins/remains of the large...More

Such a cute area. You can walk along the Jack London park area, a fun thing to do in the morning and then go over to the Glen Ellen restaurant for lunch. Many wineries in walking distance. Would recommend the Glen Ellen star for dinner and if so make sure to get reservations. You can also hire a driver to go to wineries around the Napa or Sonoma areas. Have a fun time.

There really are two tours? The house that was built after Jack London's death and the dream house that burned down, then there is the house that they lived in and this is a separate area. If you bring a picnic lunch you could take a break in between. We got hungry and left after four hours. Go on a pleasant day. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.
