An alright place. It was a little crowded, and dark. The hearing exhibit thing was out of order, which stunk. The Hot Springs Natural Trail nearby was neat.....but it was pretty much a walk next to the camp ground, but the HOT SPRINGS were awesome. I loved the experience! I will come here again if in the area.

perhaps the least busiest of the visitors centres in Mount Rainier National Park. A few good trails begin near to this places, especially the Grove of the P. and the Naches Peak (both excellent)

We went into the Visitor Center to pick up Junior Ranger booklets but this review is mostly about the trail right outside the doors. (My brother browsed the visitor center for a while and seemed to enjoy the exhibits.) The trailhead for the Hot Springs Nature Trail is right outside of the visitor center. The trail is a fairly easy... More

I need to write 50 words or they will not publish the review. How can the Nation Park service think the can make money when the visitor centers are closed and no one is there to collect the entrance fee or the camping permit fee etc.

Ohanapecosh is one of my favorite parts of the park. There is so much to see and do. The scenery is amazing. The only useful part of the Visitor center is to pick up a map and get my passport book stamped.

Amazing hike past the hot springs (like Yellowstone!) to Silver Falls. It is a moderate hike about three miles total. I could have stared at the falls for hours. Mesmerizing!

Complain to your representatives out because it is a shame to close this little gem right in the campground. It is a great starting point for visitors looking for information. There are things the little ones can actually touch...beaver tails, elk horns. But sadly unavailable now due to the feuding, anti-tax bunch. I would pay a few extra bucks to... More

We thought this visitor center felt a little isolated, unused and empty. It was also fairly dated. We enjoyed a short walk from here (Hot Springs Nature Trail) and it was worth the stop considering we were passing but I don’t think it is worth going out of your way for.

Maybe this is for most people who are campers in that area. The Rangers are very good with the information.

We camped with a large group over 4 sites. The area was beautiful with good ground cover throughout. The nearby stream and river were also fun for the kids to play with, but be careful with the log jams from the 2006 flooding - I wouldn't recommend climbing or playing on them especially for kids. Nice quiet campground with good... More
