    We started by watching the video on the visitors center. This took about 15 minutes and gave a good foundation for what we would see outside. Took another 15 minutes to walk outside to see the lodge a...  more »

    There is really no need to write a review. If you are even considering a visit here, simply read the review titles. That should be all you need to know to make that decision. As usual the rangers are ...  more »

    Awesome to see the preserved culture. How else will the children of our children learn our culture.

    A nice cultural center worth a pit house that you can't check out.

    The indoor display has kid-friendly "PLEASE TOUCH" signs all over. The place is very well-kept, and the staff are friendly. The earth lodge is a unique experience - you can go inside and look at the staged living area and see the structure of the lodge. It appears to have been constructed the old fashioned way - right down to the sticks making up the roof over your head. A real must-see! The trail to the river is well-maintained and there are sturdy rest benches every few hundred yards. The actual view on the trail calls for a little more imagination to enjoy it, and (in my opinion) wasn't quite worth the walk on a hot day. On the whole, I would recommend stopping here if you're in the area. Plan for 1.5 - 2 hours for indoor learning, going in the lodge, and walking the trail.
