We listened while we waited in line as the Rangers gave others instruction and directions on the numerous camps and beaches. I have never enjoyed waiting in line before.

Scenery is gorgeous! Hurricane Ridge is breathtaking! A must see! The mountains were capped with glaciers and the deer there were numerous. We were a little early in the year and the gift shop and restaurant were not open yet.

The staff was so helpful. They had great suggestions for hikes that are easier to do with children. They provided maps and were so patient with our many questions.

The center is located in the quaint town of Port Angeles, WA and the NPS employees were helpful and knowledgeable of the hidden treasures in the area. The history of Hurricane Ridge becoming a paradise for visitors, deer, and panoramic views. The drive is straight up and curvy and chains are required during the Winter.

Conveniently located near the entrance for Hurricane Ridge. The rangers have information on all the different areas of the park. They are knowledgeable about the plants and animals found in the different areas as well as the weather forecasts. Extremely helpful for planning multiple day trips to see as much as possible. Worth the time to stop.

I've been here before and the customer service is still pretty fantastic. The visitor's center is full of great information on the area, the wildlife and they provide plenty of maps to get you on your way.

Not much to dislike. Standard national park visitor center. The park is so huge that I am amazes it only had one. To get to the other side of the park is about an hour derive, but well worth it.
