A shout out to James for helping us out with all the maps we need for our road trip! He was very friendly and helpful!
The restrooms were clean and stocked and the interpretive signs are very interesting regarding the surrounding historical events. Well done!
Great stop on our way to DC! Very big and very nice outdoor playground. Lots of places to sit outside. Great information center and extremely helpful staff/volunteers. Perfect place to stop on a long Roadtrip, relax a little and let the kids play.
I love that this rest area has a play area in addition to clean restrooms and normal amenities one would expect. Very nicely kept grounds.

Hi Tony C!
Thank you for your positive feedback for the South Mountain Welcome Center East. Thanks for taking the time to let everyone else know as well!
The only thing you really need to know about a rest stop is should I stop or keep going. This one you're ok to stop at. Everything you need assuming you need to go. But nothing worth stoping for otherwise. There is a welcome center...More
