Once again the staff in the visitors centre were very helpful and knowledgable. She provided free maps and advice where to go and what to see.

Perfect for pull-up camping with plenty of options to explore around. We were here during the summer and it was a beautiful trip. The facilities are clean, plenty of things to explore.

The Ohanapecosh visitor center is located just inside the entrance of the Ohanapecosh campground about 3 miles (4.8k) north of the southeast entrance to the park on Hwy 123 or 42 miles (68k) east of the main park entrance, the Nisqually Entrance. This visitor center is only open between June and early October with very limited hours; the main purpose... More

This is a nice visitor center to pair with the silver falls hike that is accessed here. Lots of information on the local wildlife and flora. Our daughter really got a kick out of it.

We were looking for the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center sign while traveling on Hwy 123. The only sign is for Ohanapecosh Campground. So follow the signs for campground and you will find the center. The washrooms were open but the center was closed when we arrived (weekday morning).

as much as we enjoyed visiting mt. ranier the ohanapecosh campground and visitor center were lacking. the campgrounds bathrooms were not very clean and the water in the sinks were shut off. as for the visitor center we couldn't review that because they were only open a few hours a day in prime season

We enjoyed the usual displays but especially appreciated the clean facilities and helpful ranger who provided guidance for the lovely ~3 mile hike to Silver Falls. To minimize your climb, start the loop on the nature trail behind the visitor center, cross the bridge at the lower falls, then continue up the cascade a short distance and return to the... More

The Visitor Center has limited hours but there are many people camping here. We stopped here this morning and the center was closed but there were maps of the trails. We walked along the Interpretive Nature Trail behind the Visitor Center after parking our car in the day use parking area. This short walk hooks up to the Silver Falls... More

Beautiful campground. Try to get a spot near the creek or river. Some of the middle spots are a lot smaller and more crowded. But very quiet at night, gorgeous river and some cool hikes right from the campground as well as nearby. Beware not to leave any food out though. We had just unpacked camp, and ran down the... More
