This was one of 2 visitor centers in the park where we could watch the video about RMNP. It was about how the Rocky Mountains became a national park. The video was well done and inspiring. Other than watch the video, there wasn't much to see or do. There is a small gift shop and a large bathroom facility.

We stopped here to find out more information about Trail Ridge Road and Bear Lakes. We told the ranger what we were looking for, and she gave us so much information about the different trails around Bear Lake and Alberta Falls. She also suggested which stops along Trail Ridge Road were worth stopping for, and she was right!!! Don't hesitate... More

It's a tiny bookstore and a spot to ask rangers questions, if you can get their attention. Located before you go I to the park. Some danger talks are located here. Restrooms and WiFi available plus att cell service works here.

We saw two well done videos here that show many views of the park in different seasons. This is also where you can pick up a Junior Ranger packet, get your official RMNP patches/pins etc, and get oriented to the park. It is just outside the entrance, so no entrance fee required.

Good stop for the park movie. Good opportunity for wildlife photos in the adjacent meadow. Rangers and staff very helpful. Not a lot on interpretive displays, other than the movie.

This visitor center dates to 1965 and was designed by architects of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin firm. There are interpretive signs outside telling the story of the building and pointing out its unique features that still make it look modern today, 50 years later! Inside you'll find park rangers who are able to provide any information you want on trails,... More

Loved the staff here... lovely small visitors center... nothing exciting... picnic tables out and around so if you don't want to pay the $20 ridiculous park admission, you can hang there, see the mountains in a decent view and commune with nature :)

This is about a mile before you enter the park. I would stop in for information and if you have young kids stop in for book to earn their rangers badge. Clean and staff was very helpful for sure.

We stopped in to the center because this was our first time visiting. The volunteer was extremely helpful in providing directions and must see park attractions. Ranger Ron made my seven year old daughter's day. He gave her an activity book to complete. It really helped her learn about the wildlife and importance of caring for the park. When she... More

The Beaver Meadows Visitor Center is always busy with visitors who are entering and departing from the Rocky Mountain National Park. This center is the place to stop to obtain information on the park, road conditions, wildlife and more. The Rangers are friendly and very informative. Be sure to watch the 23 minute informational video on the park, which is... More
