This is a great place to get your bearings straight for the region. The staff is super informative and knowledgeable about the area. One of the coolest things is the topographic map at the center of the main foyer. Make sure you visit!

Very informative staff. Quite a ride to the far end of the park. Stop at the dam first, then go to the center. You will understand more. They are in the process of dredging the lake, so not much water to see.
