This is an older visitor center with great exhibits and information; our young kids enjoyed it. They're building a new visitor center just down the road, hoping to open it within the next year. Small gift shop and informational talks on the patio at scheduled times.

I was a bit disappointed with this visitor's center. The ladies at the front counter acted like you were bothering them if you asked a question. The place was not busy. I thought - what are they going to be like when the real tourist season starts. Oh well, it was a good place to get in out of the... More

We had a picnic at this visitors center. There are several picnic tables. The inside of the center is like a small museum with various specimen of local animals and a history of the area. There was a ranger on duty that gave a program about buffaloes and where to find them on that particular day. The bathrooms are very... More

Ask the ranger about the location of wildlife on the Wildlife Loop Road and they will tell you where to find the animals. Nice gift shop, good maps, and history of the area.

We went to the centre after we had done the wildlife loop. The staff invited my children to do the Junior Naturalists book and they got to work immediately. They staff were all helpful and very knowledgeable. The children loved the centre and the work that they did and were awarded their patches on our last day of visiting the... More

Volunteers were helpful in choosing hikes for our party of six, ranging in age from 5-42. The displays of park wildlife and history were interesting to browse for a few minutes. We also attended some child programming at this site (how to make a Medicine Pouch and info about buffalo). My daughter completed her park booklet (the PUPS program) and... More

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:)
