We were so happy to meet the ladies in the visitors center. They were knowledgeable and friendly. They helped us make some decisions about how best to see the area with a baby in tow!

We thought we were at the gateway to Yosemite. We had to drive another 2 1/2 hours to get to the area in the park with the waterfalls. Kind of deceptive.

Very helpful and informative staff with great tips and advice on visiting the nearby parks. Always worth visiting these places but this one stood out.

The Visitor Center in Oakhurst is a great place to get local info. Staffed by great volunteers, as well as Yosemite National Park and Sierra National Forest folks, you've got your bases covered. In addition to your run-of-the-mill tourist info, do you need a wilderness permit or fire permit for camping? Looking for information about hiking trails? Want to rent a bear canister for backpacking? Just stop by the Visitor Center in Oakhurst!
