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.

Out of all the national parks I have been to, I have seen my fair share of visitor centers. This one was ok. It wasn't the best I have been to but it was set up nice and was clean. The exhibits weren't as updated as they could have been but the rangers were helpful and the volunteers were on... More

There is a movie that one can sit down and watch which was relaxing and informative, the gifts were less expensive here than those at Sequoia Park Gift shop. Both parks have both park memorabilia in them so do not think if you do not get it now, you will miss out on having something to remind you of your... More

Yes, the people at the visitor center were very knowledgable and were very helpful. There was also a post office, a general store which was adequately equipped, and a nice gift shop.

We had a great time looking at the souveniers here - the sales staff were very friendly and helpful. They told us where we could get gas and some highlights of what to see.

The time talking to park employees and volunteers really paid off. The information they gave directed us to beautiful points. We only had one night in the park and because of their helpfulness we were able to see so much.

The people who work here were friendly and helpful despite the repetition of questions and the variety of clients. One feels welcome and the accessibility of supplies, whether for camping or for tourism is good. I really wish however that all National Parks would stock American made items only. I would pay more for that!

Excellent source of information about King's Canyon NP with displays, films, information desk, souvenirs, maps, etc. Nice "regular" restrooms before heading into park.
