Usually I breeze through Visitors Centers and look at the photos and some of the artifacts, but this center was different. A large portion of the center is devoted to educating people about the environment and the importance of rivers and freshwater. I also enjoyed the interactive areas. For example, various bird nests on display with photos of the bird... More

They were very helpful and knew a lot about the area. She took her time to explain to me which direction to travel to get to the falls and also gave tips and where to stop to get the best pictures... Loved it

When I first came here I was shocked at how wonderful this building is! Looks like they have spent Millions of Dollars on this. It's such a shame there isn't any trails or nothing to do here. You have to drive on down the rd to see the river that sadly the State is taking over and rules and regulations... More

Sandstone visitor center is a nice place to stop while traveling. Restrooms are very clean. I think the National Park Service oversees the Visitor Center so worth a stop.

Located just off of I-64, the Sandstone Visitor Center details the environmental and ecological aspects of the New River Gorge National River. The building is well maintained and the exhibits well done to explore the New River Gorge environment. The film shown is short but gives a good overview to those starting a tour of the region. The park ranger... More

Thanks for your recommendation to visit the Grand View of... More

The Sandstone Visitor Center, located along I64, is a newer visitor center for the New River Gorge National River and serves as the primary visitor center for visitors arriving from the east. Although not as good as the Canyon Rim Visitor Center (located in Lansing), it is still worth a stop. This visitor center’s exhibits focus more upon the nature... More
