Good rest stop

Some good explanations of local geology and flora and fauna. I enjoyed the wall maps and poster displays.

The ladies on duty the days I visited were full of information. They were also full of maps, I walked out with four maps! (I love maps, this is a good thing:)

Nice visitors center with some animals and history about the area. The Junior Rangers program here was too long for us at 3-4 hours so we decided not to do this one.

This is a great Visitor's Center. Bring the kids and learn about the area. Great displays. I'm sad they are building a new one to replace it. I sure hope they keep it as it is on the National Register of Historic Places and is truly seeped in history.

Also if you want to do the Ranger led caravan on the Wildlife Loop, this is where it starts. We went on the 9:00 am one, and it was wonderful. Totally worth it, and highly... More
