Jack London State Historic Park was saved from closure by Jack London Park Partners, a project of Valley of the Moon Natural History Association. Everyone can enjoy Jack London State Historic Park and discover the trails, Jack's Beauty Ranch, picnic sites, historic stone barns, the House of Happy Walls museum and more.
Founded in 1960 with 39 acres including the musuem, London's gravesite and the ruins of Wolf House, the park now includes most of London's holdings and is a National Historic Landmark.
Be a partner and be a part of conserving the park for future generations.
1400 acres of trails, pristine vistas, and historic buildings demonstrate early 20th century life. London's literary work, adventures, and passion for the land come alive in exhibits and interpretation provided by docents and staff proud to be the first non-profit in the state to operate a state park!
