Great stop for info

This gives you a great entry into the two parks and gives valuable information on sites to visit and backcountry information. Ranger and volunteer staff is friendly and helpful.

With only five minutes to spare before closing, I was allowed to make critical purchases for great nieces and nephews! The staff took the time to ascertain that we were park members (at Grand Canyon) and carefully applied the discount, even though it was past closing time. Major plaudits!

Of the three visitor centers we experienced, this one was the best. Fascinating museum, including the video detailing all aspects of the park. If you can only visit one, this is it.

A lovely area with very helpful rangers. The park is a gateway to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The mountains and trees are spectacular. There's even a US Post Office that is one of our stops each year. They have the best selection of stamps around!

Located in a lovely part of the Park. The Rangers were very helpful and friendly. They provided ideas for so many things to see and do in the Park.

I was surprised there were quite a few people for a Tuesday, but teaching my grandchild a little history of Grants grove was worth it. Then we headed out to grant Trail...

Shuttle service may leave you stranded. Supervisors and park personnel are not very helpful when this happens.
