  • We toured the house, the ruins, the farm, and the gravesite of Jack London. I didn't know much about him other than White Fang and Call if the Wild, and he and his wife have an amazing story. I found....  more »
  • This is a quiet mostly forested state park in rolling hills away form the winery bus tours. A good destination if you are looking for something to do outside, but have had your fill of wine tours...  more »

  • If you liked any of Jack London’s book you must come to this beautiful place to learn more about this extraordinary man with an extraordinary life. Did you know he was one of the first white men to learn surfing? He also had so many love stories, there is a whole book dedicated to his women. If you come on Sun, you might catch a volunteer playing an original 1901 Steinway grand piano that belonged to London’s wife. 🐕 dogs are allowed everywhere except the inside the buildings. $10 🚘 entrance Check out the museum, Jack’s grave, Wolf House and bran ruins, also a cottage ($3 entry, 2-4pm)
  • "I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." The man lived just as he said and I am glad I could walk the same dirt roads as he. Must visit. Extensive collection of Jack and Charmian's possessions/collectibles. Short hikes (~0.6 miles) to the wolf house ruins and Jack's grave. Closes on time, so be early so that you could spend time.
