Clean facilities. Several films to watch and a nice display area. A good overview of the area. Worth 30 minutes to an hour to enjoy. The one lane road bridge with traffic lights is fun on entry/exit.

We stopped at the visitor centre to find out the best things to see and do. The area was suffering with a smokey atmosphere because of local wildfires so the mountains were shrouded in smoke. The rangers were very friendly and helpful. There were good...More
