Don't forget to round out your visit to Volcanoes State Park with a visit to the Art Center. The ladies working there are most helpful, friendly, and informative. You will learn something. Most art is locally created. We walked away with a couple gems.

Worth going into for historical information and a few displays. It is a small site but you will learn about history and flora and fauna.

The art work and jewelry are plentiful and beautiful. It closes at 5, so get there early enough to make your purchase.

A very nice collection in an historic building. There are a number of artists represented, and the works are of excellent quality. A great stop if it's raining.

Located inside the Military camp. Lots of free maps and very helpful staff. The place can get very crowded but worth visiting.
