A must visit if driving the park way.

This is a must visit if driving the park way. They have all the information and can tell you about any potential road closures.

Beautiful Scenic Trails
Jul 2021
We stopped in for a few minutes mainly to get information on surrounding trails. A trailhead to an easy dog friendly trail was right there in the parking lot. It was scenic but could stand to be better marked. Luckily for us, there were maintenance workers on the trail who were able to direct us. Rangers at the Center were helpful. I'd like to return and explore more trails.

Stop here!

Nice facility and gives you a good background on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Visitor Center folks are very friendly and spend time explaining trails, sights, etc. Some nice unique map and books (I bought one on waterfalls; we'll use next time we go.)

It's fine, but nothing special

Staff had info about gas stops. Seemed small, but clean and not crowded. Gift shop wasn't that great. This would be good if you wanted brochures or maps, or if you needed a restroom break before the parkway.

Loads of information

This is definitely a must stop to understand and learn about the Blue Ridge Parkway. There were vehicles in the parking lot from all over the country getting maps and info. Great little store.

This center is a beautiful facility, and staff is very helpful. With mobility issues, we were looking for easy access waterfalls and scenery, and we got great advice.

Disappointed
Apr 2021
Great views along part of the Parkway but a lot of the roads were closed during our stay. The ranger at the visitors center was very unhelpful.

Worth a visit.

Took a quick side trip to see the visitor center. There were several nice exhibits to checkout as well as a small gift shop. If you are in the area I would recommend taking the 20-30 minutes to walk through the center.

Not good enough

Not very informative visitor center. They have maps and catalogs but can to show the attraction spots of Blue Ridge pk to visitors properly. Lots of things are close due to Covid19
