“Good tips”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The hostess at the time was an enthusiastic hiker and told us some good trails to go on. We did and agreed with her descriptions.

“Could be more helpful”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

Called in here as I had received so much good information from them during my pre-trip planning and we found ourselves with a free day whilst in the area. Staff manning the counter could really only suggest going out to Matanuska Glacier and didn't even know how long it would take to drive there. (2 hours??) Thought we'd have a look around the adjacent vegetable garden and again, staff were not willing to answer questions or show off their produce. Pretty strange experience really. All in all - we found the Palmer/Wasilla region to be the least friendly we visited in Alaska and consequently our least favourite. We only had two negative experiences our whole trip and they were both here. Take your money and spend in a region like the Kenai or Talkeetna that welcomes its visitors.

“Nice flower garden”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

The highlight of this stop is the walk through flower/vegetable garden. Some beautiful photo ops. The log cabin visitor center is well maintained and has a few items for sale. Bathrooms, always a bonus, are clean and maintained.
