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.
