This is an excellent resource for information and maps on the area. The only drawback is that it closes at 5 pm. It participates in the plastic bottle recycling program initially started at Grand Canyon. You bring in your plastic or other reusable bottle and fill it for free with cool filtered Brita water. Nice!

Definitely visit here first and have someone help you plan your days. Gps brought us to the wrong location. Look for big sign on road instead.

I loved the Visitor Center here! Modern and updated, it was really welcoming. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly; the selection of retail items was broad and the prices were average for a state-sponsored center such as this. Great place to stop at first if you haven't been to the area before.
