  • We went there just hoping to have a picnic, not really to pay to get in but the Ranger at the gate really sold it to us so in we went. It was fabulous with a terrific museum, lovely walks and full of interesting places to see. Well worth a visit. Take a camera and your walking shoes.
  • Was Jack London using hyperbole when he named his Valley of the Moon property "Beauty Ranch?" No. No he was not. Did Jack London predict that American capitalism would wind up as fascism and oligarchy? Yes. Yes he did. Jack and Charmian were amazing people and this state historic park demonstrates that in every way.
  • Interesting place. Trails can be kind of Rocky in places. Enjoyed seeing his home. Liked the historic aspect of it.
  • Little difficult to find, however well worth it. Tours of jack's house really show his character. Meanwhile the walking paths expose a side of unique America history.
  • I am inspired by his words and his philosophy towards life. It is a warm winter day when I visited it, glad that it is not affected by the October fire. Will go again when the leaves return.
