“The best of the visitor centres we visited in British Columbia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We travelled thru British Columbia and the Yukon for the month of August and stopped at many visitor centres on the way but the one in Valemont was by far the best. I wish I remembered the name of the woman behind the counter but she was so helpful and informative. Even though she was busy Ina there she never made us fell pressured by moving along. She managed to handle at least 4 couples at a time without being frazzled.

Enjoyed the interpretive talk about spawning salmon at the rivers edge! We were there at the right time.

“Do your own research”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stopped here to find out where the Mount Robson Lodge was and how far away we were from it. The lady we spoke to tried to give us verbal directions but it was confusing. She said it was a ways down the highway and then when we turn off only 5 minutes. Well, experience now tells me it was 20 minutes down the highway and then another 15 minutes to the lodge. She should have also mentioned that there was no food available on site and that we should stop at a grocery store if we wanted anything for the evening. The gift shop is very nice and worth a look.

“friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is quite a large information centre with friendly and helpful staff. They will tell you all about the salmon in the nearby creek and it is worth going down to look at them.
