Stop and get the info.

This was a great stop going into Rocky for a quick bathroom break for the kids before the drive up. Also a good place to stop to get your bearings before the drive.

We went to this Visitor center most as this was the closest to our stay. These rangers were outstanding. So personable, informative and wow, do they know their stuff.

The Volunteer behind the desk pulled out the Map of Places to Hike and highlighted the places we needed to park in order to enjoy the places we were interested. She was VERY Friendly and VERY Helpful....Thank You Beaver Meadows Visitor Center!

There is a theater at the basement level where you can watch a short movie about Rocky mountain for free. The movie is about 20 minutes and covers the history (including native American activities) and wildlife.

Good info on the park or pick up souvenirs of your trip. Friendly and informative employees. I think the visitor centers at RMNP are well run and valuable assets for travelers.

This visitor center is typical of what you would expect to find. The location is in a very pretty part of Rocky Mountain NP and staff here are helpful. The gift shop is very small, but adequate. Restrooms are nearby and clean.

Stopped to pick up our back country permit. Rangers were very helpful. I suggest to use the restroom here also as the lines get longer at stops further up. Nothing really awesome to see here but the info for those venturing in the park is valuable.

Tons of information and extremely helpful with directing us to the right trails to hike. We were glad that we stopped to get the information. If you don't know the area or never been it is a great idea to stop and ask what trails are the best for that time of year.

Lots of parking. Very nice building and a wonderful feel, but very busy. Help desk was always busy as was the gift shop. Gift Shop was small. Films on the park also shown. It is a warm feeling and nicely design. It is the Gift Shop that is a bit small and hard to move around in because there were... More
