  • Typically, National Parks have nice visitor centers staffed with friendly rangers and this one is no exception. Good way to get information before heading into the park.  more »
  • Very helpful ranger and staff. We bought our National Park pass here. It was very busy and I do think they could benefit from another person to help keep up with the traffic.  more »
  • The kids had a great time in the discovery room, spent an hour there. Lots of info and gift shop was nice. Clean and updated restrooms!  more »

  • You can tell this is a good place for the animals that are blessed enough to be here, just observing them you can tell they are happy and content❤💙 awesome helpful and loving staff says it all. Absolutely beautiful area of Washington!
  • It is in a temporary building (read port-a-potties for bathrooms). The park rangers are great-very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us find some lovely winter hikes. The souvenir shop isn't very large but its got the basics. Would definitely visit again (hopefully in the remodeled permanent building).
  • They moved to 600 E Park Ave, Port Angeles, WA 98362, which is the wilderness center as well. This is due to the renovation and will only be temporary according to the website. The staff are very helpful. Definitely check with them about your plan if you are not really sure about the plan. And they have updated road conditions on site as well, so if you forget to check before you go, might as well stop here to make sure the road is open, especially during October to June.
  • Went on 26 December. Lovely place. Must visit but keep an eye on snow conditions. Restrooms there with a small cafe and rangers staff.
  • It's a beautiful center. I showed up at the beginning of a long weekend, so the line for permits and bear cans was starting to wrap around the building. The staff and volunteers at the center were very friendly and helpful. The displays were also very interesting.
