I have been visiting the Salt Pond Visitor's Center for many years. The exhibits are first rate and the book store is well-stocked and reasonably priced. The view from the back of the center is beautiful and there are miles of walking and bike trails. If you love taking pictures like I do, you will be very happy there.

This is a locally run, tourist info center, about the salt ponds of Eastham. One gets general info of wildlife, plants, history, preservation etc. This is a neat thing to do en-route but I would not make it a stop of its own for any length of time.

The visitors center is always a good place to go at the beginning of our vacation because we like to get the "inside information" from the workers there. They are very helpful when it comes to knowing about the beaches and having a beach bonfire or any other information we want to know about.

the rangers were friendly, answered questions, didn't spent much time here because we were in a rush to get to the beaches before they filled up!

Salt Pond occurs visitors some educational background on the Cape's geology. It's fascinating to learn how the area's land and seas came to be. They have short video in a theatre, exhibits and outside walking paths. A definite for families vacationing on the Cape. Great for a rainy day. There's a bike path to Coast Guard Beach which crosses a... More

Wonderful programs (canoeing, yoga) and easy access to the beach bike trail! The restrooms here are clean if you need a pit stop before going to Coast Guard Beach.

Everyone visiting the National Seashore for the first time should stop by and visit the Salt Pond Visitor Center. It is especially good for children to give them an introduction to the area and the environment. The displays are interesting, handouts are useful and the trails are great with interpretative signs and just the right length for families.
