The center, located at the park's only lodge, is one of the better equipped, as it offers an interactive computer exhibit and a bookstore. An adjacent general store has camping supplies, picnic fare, and some produce. There are plenty of nods to the wild, with natural resource and geology exhibits and a larger-than-life representation of a mountain lion. The center sponsors educational activities here and at the nearby Chisos Basin Amphitheater. If you are traveling just to see the visitor center, call ahead; opening and closing times are subject to change due to staffing and seasonal transitions.
