My wife and I stopped here with our 6 year old while visiting RMNP. We stopped on our last day and quickly realized we should have stopped here first. The staffer was friendly and helpful. I bought my first National park souvenir passport and he explained it well. The Park Ranger explained the junior ranger program to us and our... More

Visited here a couple of times during our stay. The shop is excellent and the cafe was reasonable value, given the captive market.

The rangers were so friendly. One gave us very detailed info on where to see elk (we did!!) and gave good directions for driving and where to catch the bus. Nice gift shop next door!

Everyone here was very nice and helpful with whatever you needed to know. There was a small shop also there and some displays. Next to this visitor center was a beautiful gift store for National Park gifts and also a very good restaurant.

We had an amazing dinner on the back deck of the visitor center. The portions were huge and you can easily share. I loved the kale and quinoa salad topped with a giant piece of salmon and my husband had the trout. Both were wonderful as was the services. The view of the mountains was stunning as the lg was...

This place got us pumped to enter the park. Lots of info and great ideas of how to spend our time. Make sure you stop off if you haven't been in the park as the short time you spend there will help you maximize your experience at RMNP

The rangers were very helpful in guiding us to several different hiking trails and explaining the rating of each. They took the time to outline each on a map explaining the directions and time to get to each location. They also have introductory classes on the wildlife in the area.

I have been here several times during my summer visits to RMNP and have always gotten good help. This time I had a volunteer tell me about their "museum exhibits", not a lot of them, but interesting to spend some time there. Then I spoke with one ranger about meeting a dog on a trail, and she promised to look... More
