Fodor's Review

Exhibits at this multimillion-dollar facility document the great 1980 blast of Mt. St. Helens and its effects on the surrounding 150,000 acres, which were devastated but are in the process of a remarkable recovery. A ¼-mile trail leads from the visitor center to Coldwater Lake, which has a recreation area.
