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.

Beautiful Log Cabin with a flower garden and a picnic table under a large shade tree.. Friendly helpful staff, a pot of good coffee (free) and a fantastic assortment of brochures. Some of the nicest, cleanest restrooms in the State; and free parking. Even locals visit the visitors center just to see what flowers are in bloom!
