“Small but had Junior Ranger booklets and some souvenirs”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

We stopped by the Island in the Sky Visitor's Center so our boys could get their Junior Ranger booklets. Many parks require the kids to attend a ranger program or watch the park movie but they were able to substitute picking up trash for that. It's a good way for kids to learn not to litter and if they see litter, simply pick it up and throw it out.

I'm surprised the Visitor Center isn't bigger because it is a popular district in Canyonlands. The restrooms are outside in port-a-potty fashion. There is a water fountain right inside the Visitor Center but I also noticed visitors filling their water bottles outside and to the left (facing the center). The gift shop portion is pretty small which again is pretty surprising because most people visiting that Visitor Center will not make it to another one that day and may want to load up on souvenirs.

“Thought it'd be better”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I thought the visitor center would be a little better/bigger. Was kind of small, not all that much parking and if you needed to use the bathroom, there's permanent port-a-potties outside.. So there's really no where to wash your hands or get water or anything..
