“Grant Grove Visitor Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Good information and displays, could have been more interactive. It is helpful to stop and learn a bit more about the park. Also has a good gift shop.

Stopped at Grant Grove Visitor center to ask about trail conditions in Redwood Canyon and were impressed with helpful, professional and friendly assistance provided by Ranger on duty. Bathrooms were clean and warm!

“Tells the Story of the Trees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Nice facility and friendly staff that tells the story of the parks and Kings Canyon. Thank God they didn't get to dam this one! The General Grant Tree entrance is just 1/4 mile north of the center.

“Well done, loads of Information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Nice gift shop, great exhibits, good movie, all for free!. Really shows you a lot about Kings Canyon National Park. The Rangers are well informed, warm and helpful. Get a map of the close-by campgrounds for free.

“Very busy weekend but the staff was doing great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The park service pulled a lot of volunteers in for the Labor day weekend. And surprisingly, they were well trained and we didn't have to wait long for the answers we needed. Lines even for the mens room but it was a busy weekend.

There was a bear near the center so be educated in how to deal with them before you travel.
