It was easy to pull of the road into their parking lot. We were looking for suggestions for an evening drive, the one we got turned out not to be too exciting. We did get a town map and a friendly chat.

Great visitor's center and I would consider it a must do when in a Blanding. The woman on duty when we went in was fabulous. Full of enthusiasm and knowledge of this fascinating area, she charted out some great ideas to fill our next three days. Definitely stop in there when you're staying in Blanding or just rolling through town.

Being moderately prepared to visit off the beaten track sites around the area, I was still getting essential information from the staff on preparing my trips. Very helpful with informative useful maps and description of sites! Highly recommended.

I love to pop into Visitor's Centers and found Blanding's to be among the very best. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and provided plenty of tips on places to visit, eat, and buy local products. They were also interested in hearing about our experiences in the area. We learned many interesting facts about Blanding (for example, "Grayson" was the town's... More

Lynne works there at this visitors center. She is fantastic ! She gave us great advice for things to see and do and provided all the maps. She even gave us a free Utah calendar and popcorn to go. She was such a blessing!!

As long term and long distance travellers (18,000+ miles by RV in the USA since the beginning of April this year) we have visited innumerable Visitor & Welcome Centers. This is THE BEST: easy access and parking, friendly, informational, knowledgeableable, educational, entertaining, and even lollypops. If you are close, stop.

Great little small-town visitor center, it's like your grandfather standing behind the counter trying to give you information and help you with phone numbers of local hotels. They're just there to show you a little bit of the history and try and help

This visitors center is small but complete. The very helpful woman working there when we arrived could not have been more friendly. Not only did she answer our many questions, but provided quite a bit of useful unsolicited information that made our visit to this area much more enjoyable.

We were on our way between park visits and stopped by this visitor's center for free wifi and information on nearby sights. The gentleman at the Desk was really helpful. He recommended visiting Natural Bridges National Monument after we explained our schedule and asked for recommendations. We followed his advice and had a great 2-hour visit to Natural Bridges.
