Canyon Visitor Center Review

This gleaming visitor center features elaborate interactive exhibits for adults and kids. The focus here is volcanoes and earthquakes, but there are also exhibits on Native Americans and park wildlife, including bison and wolves. As at all visitor centers, you can obtain park information, backcountry camping permits, etc. The adjacent bookstore is the best in the park, with hundreds of books on the park, its history, and the science surrounding it.

    Very informative

    We love this visitor center, especially the huge relief map of the park and the displays on volcanoes, earthquakes, and hotspots. The movies are well worth the time to watch.

    Very modern bathroom facilities!
