Great Area To Visit
Aug 2021
This is a nice area to visit, but very busy and crowded. The parking area is a nightmare. There are so many people visiting this area that you may have to walk quite a distance after parking your vehicle. They do have a bus that comes around for pick up, but it is still quite a wait.

Very Helpful Local Info
Dec 2019 • Family
We were in town with our daughter who was snowboarding, and we were not. So we sought out some advice here. Blake was very helpful and friendly while describing hiking areas nearby, along with recommended hot springs and restaurants. There is a small store here with maps, walking sticks and other locally made items. Worth a few minutes to get acquainted with the area.

Short visit
Sep 2019
Everything you would expect from a Visitor Center. Located on the edge of town within a short drive. Well liad out with plenty of staff / stock to speak with and to choose from. Free parking as you would expect with a bus service.

Great place to start with your visit
Sep 2019
While some who visit the welcome center are well-versed in the area and know exactly what they are looking for, for those who are first time visitors, this is the place to start. With plenty of free information about the area, there are helpful hosts who can answer questions about the area's hiking, biking, camping and other attractions. It was a bit crowded when we arrived in the afternoon; however, it was check in time for hotels and campsites.
