Oconoluftee Visitor Center

When I was there last year, they were building a new visitor center. Does anyone know if they finished it?

When I was there in August of this year they were still working on it.

Looks like they had a lot of work to go.

They are still working on it 2 weeks ago. Just looking and depending on the winter it may be ready to open next summer.

John, I didn't realize we were there at the same time!

Agreed with you, too. It should be ready for tourist season next year.

Hi TwinDad,

According to the Fall 2010 Smokies Guide, 2010 Special Report - State of the Park, "The new park visitor center at Oconaluftee is slated to open later this year."

Brad,

We where there at the same time. We did the Wed. Through Saturday loop through Cherokee, Gatlinburg, PF and back through Maggie Valley and home. There was surprisingly a lot of families with kids in Gatlinburg that week. The wife had a few days off from teaching so we headed up.
