The staff here was fun, friendly, and able to provide a lot of helpful recommendations for trails and restaurants in the area. There are dozens and dozens of free brochures and maps available here. Worth the stop if it's your first time in Ucluelet/Tofino!

Not much help. Load up on pamphlets and plan your trip at the airport or any other visitor centre anywhere. I've never felt less informed. Not even a lot of pamphlets. I found better information for the area even back on the mainland.

Small, but they have maps, brochures, a few things for sale, but best of all they can answer all of your questions and do so with a smile.

The center itself has seen better days. Unfortunately, it seems to have been left unattended for a while. At the same time, I have to say that the staff were great and friendly and the exhibits worth seeing.

This is a must when u get to uculete. You can buy your park pass or like me a new ball cap. They have the park maps and all the info you need for your amazing trip to the park.
