Rocky Mountain National Park Sights

Beaver Meadows Visitor Center

  • Information Center

Updated 10/02/2013

Fodor's Review

Housing the park headquarters, this visitor center was designed by students of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture at Taliesen West using the park's popular rustic style, which integrates buildings into their natural surroundings. Completed in 1966, it was named a National Historic Landmark in 2001. The surrounding utility buildings are also on the National Register and are noteworthy examples of the rustic-style buildings that the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed during the Depression. The center has a terrific 20-minute orientation film and a large relief map of the park.
