The ladies working there are very kind and willing to help, however they did not seem to be well rounded in the area. They did not know many places around Alaska to offer guidance and the places they knew of they didn't know too many details. I would not recommend seeking advice from them.

Best little visitors center I've seen. They carry booklets and pamphlets for the entire state so you can plan your way in any direction ahead of time. Well informed people on staff to answer your questions. Take a peek at some of Alaska's native critters as well. Worth a stop in.

If you are interested in the old artifacts of Wasilla's beginning this is the place to visit. Well maintained and organized. Helpful and friendly docent.

Went to get information for friends that will be visiting from the lower 48, young girl was very informative. The place is small and it smelled like urine, hence the average rating.

The hostess at the time was an enthusiastic hiker and told us some good trails to go on. We did and agreed with her descriptions.

Called in here as I had received so much good information from them during my pre-trip planning and we found ourselves with a free day whilst in the area. Staff manning the counter could really only suggest going out to Matanuska Glacier and didn't even know how long it would take to drive there. (2 hours??) Thought we'd have a... More

The highlight of this stop is the walk through flower/vegetable garden. Some beautiful photo ops. The log cabin visitor center is well maintained and has a few items for sale. Bathrooms, always a bonus, are clean and maintained.
