“Very Helpful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

The volunteer that was manning the desk was very helpful. When we arrived in Grand Lake, there was a wild fire raging between grand lake and Estes Park. Everyone was helpful letting us know was was going on, if the roads were open or closed and just very friendly! We thought about staying the night but thought we had better press on to Estes park. We will be back to stay at least one night in the future in Grand Lake!

“Not at all what we expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We came here thinking we would get information of the area. WRONG! Well, right but the information is in the form of interactive displays and staff to help answer questions about the area. It was obvious that they really cared about their town.

“High Altitude Lake with gorgeous views”

This freezes over for about 6 months out of the year, but in the summer months of July and August is just beautiful. Great destination for a road trip for sure.
