We went hiking up a 2.0 mile trail up to Inspiration point. The grounds are nice with a huge soccer/Polo field along with stables with horses/guides for hire. The trail (one of many) winds past historic structures and greenery. At trails end is a spectacular...More

Very serene park, spread out in a large area. Will Rogers`s house is very-well maintained and beautifully preserved.

I again was fooled by the website for the Will Rogers State Park. It does state that tours are provided on the hour, but it doesn't say that the house is closed to visitors who choose not to tour with a docent. With LA traffic...More

Will Rogers State Historic Park is situated off Sunset Blvd. in West Los Angeles. Its keystone is the rambling former home of the cowboy-humorist, which has docent-led tours. The sprawling grounds (which include a Polo Field and the remains of some golf practice holes) are...More

Really beautiful place with lots of history. Nobody was complaining because the hike wasn't that long and the views rocked. Bring a picnic. No food here and you don't want to rush out of there. Parking is not free unless you park down the block...More

This is a must if you are in the Malibu vicinity and an excellent add on if visiting the Getty Villa. Be prepared to pay $12 for parking ($11 Senior). But the docent led tour is free. And the house contains some magnificent cowboy artwork...More

I would give this park 5 stars except that it is hard to find (call ahead for directions if you are from out of town) and you will need exact change to park ($12.00). Don’t bother to go unless you take a tour. Call ahead...More

Lovely place for a walk. We parked a bit down the street as they charge a fee to park. If we were going to be there all day would have paid but we were only going for a wee walk. The trails were very easy...More

Hello! From what we could see, it looked like people were arriving early in the day to stake out their spots. This would lead me to believe that it's "first come, first serve" but I'm not sure...
