Gift selection is unique- not the same things you see in every other Nation Park gift shop. They also book tours of the park- exceptional in service and extremely informative. Highly recommend.

The Encampment Store has a penny machine! This is an important fact to know. Aside from that, store has a great selection of souvenirs and a limited selection of snacks. Staff is nice and very helpful.
