  • If planning on hiking and staying around Escalante this is a must stop for information on the region. The rangers offered maps on the slots and a thorough weather forecast for the region.

  • Best to arrive at the Escalante area having done some research, but if you didn't, these folks help you plan best outings to enjoy the area. It's vast and you are best served having at least 2 days...

  • We drove into Escalante and almost missed the Center. It’s a pretty brick building there on the side of the road. Inside is a small display area that was COVID closed. There’s a small gift shop area.....  more

  • Tons of info and the rangers are always friendly. Pick up some wag bags if you’re going canyon camping.
  • The staff here are great. I asked about the availability of springs in Coyote Gulch. One of the rangers then took the time to hand-mark the location of reliable springs on a topo map. I bought that map. This was extremely useful.
  • The facility has info specific to the amount of time you have or your travel style. You can ask the front desk for print outs of certain things like slot canyon hikes. They have tons of books and maps that you can take photos of or purchase. There's an exhibit of insects, rocks, and other interesting things you can find in the area. The parking lot also has a water fill up for RVs. WiFi was fast too.
  • Interesting stop while traveling the Highway 12 Scenic Byway on our Grand Circle tour of National and State Parks. We had some really beautiful views as we traversed our way across Utah's magnificent parks. The staff in this Visitor Center were really nice and helpful and made our trip more enjoyable. Take the time to stop, talk and learn it is interesting.
  • Closed because of Covid 19. They still have a lot of information in their Courtyard with flyers and maps. No one to talk to about great place to still stop for information.
