Fodor's Review

The bookstore has a wide selection of titles covering specialized topics such as cave environments and area history and wildlife—and plenty of furry frills. For a chuckle, pick up a canned bat—a stuffed free-tailed likeness sealed within an aluminum can. Batteries, postcards, and other items are available in two gift shops. In the larger one, jewelry recalls American Indian history with silver and mother-of-pearl renditions of Kokopelli—a pipe-playing fertility god. A restaurant onsite serves reasonably priced regional fare, such as green-chile chicken soup with tortilla.
