Fodor's Review

The gateway to world-famous White Rim Road, this visitor center, 21 miles from U.S. 191, past the park entrance off the main park road, is often filled with a mix of mountain bikers, hikers, and tourists. Enjoy the orientation film, then browse the bookstore for information about the Canyonlands region. Exhibits help explain animal adaptations as well as some of the history of the park. Rangers give short talks twice a day.
