The visitor centre is worth a stop if you have never visited it before. They have some interesting interactive displays as well as a little gift shop inside.

The relocated visitor centre isn't that warm friendly place with the local feel that I used to enjoy when coming to the Comox Valley. Now it's awkward to access and has to much of a "we're here to make money" feel to it. Too bad...More

It's worth the visit to see the building. Lots of friendly staff and enough information to keep your trip to the Comox Valley busy. Probably the cleanest washrooms you'll find on your trip - Yeah!
