Our stop at the visitor center was informative. The man working was very helpful including giving us tokens for the Flora Bama. The restrooms were clean and there was even a geocache.

The info center boasts a tank form Tanked and it is cute but there aren’t many fish and it’s really the base that is the pirate ship. The information and maps are helpful and the hosts are friendly.

The gals at the welcome center where so nice and gave us more than enough suggestions of things and places to see on a rainy day. Plenty of pamphlets on everything you might need for your stay.
