A good place to top and get info if you haven’t. You can also get water here, and earn more about the park. Rangers were friendly.

This visitors center has rather little in the way of exhibits. They do show a short video which introduces the various parts of the park.

Load up on water and unload your bladder before hiking! This visitor center also has a theater and some fun gifts.

Lots to learn about and a few hands on displays. Good movie ( need to mount the TV on wall so people in back can see!), and a great gift shop. Rangers are friendly and eager to help! Ranger Robby was great.

They were very helpful in providing advice on what to see given the time available. The restroom facilities are extremely primitive. And note that the park entrance is about 25 miles from main highway.
