I am sure park rangers get very tired of answering repetitive questions over and over again but the ranger I encountered acted put out with my questions. I think he was bored. Had to wait in line to use restroom at this location.

The two members of staff there obviously love to work there, you can see they enjoy what they are doing. They definitely overcome your expectations when asked for help. Inside the centre there is a "museum" with information about the area and also a short movie is being played, no admission. Great!

A well laid out visitor center with lots of reference books, reading material and gift ideas. Located right at Grant Grove on Highway 180. An excellent place to stop and get help planning your visit, from local strolls to day hikes and more.

The gifts in the store were also really nice and were a great selection. The educational 'hallway' along the side was also well maintained... More

The people who work here are amazing. I left my purse at the Grant Grove parking lot while taking a picture and when I returned it was gone. This was very upsetting to me because we were travelling from out of state and I had EVERYTHING in there. I thought someone would turn it into the Visitor Center but they... More

They will loan you a wheelchair to help see the trees. Very helpful in guiding us to get the most out of our visit, if in doubt, ask, they are very nice.

Our counter helper was very specific in recommending what we should spend our limited time driving to see. She was patient and pleasant and enthusiastic about the area we asked about.
