“Excellent info center!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

While we were staying just a couple of blocks away and on our way out for the day, we dropped in for a quick look around and to pick up a couple more brochures but stayed over half an hour. It is a great introduction to the area with all the displays and museum but also offers a good place to break a longer journey. Everywhere is clean and spacious and has good wheelchair access. The staff are very friendly and helpful, not to mention enthusiastic for the area. We got invited behind the reception counter to see the live web cam pictures of baby Bald Eagles and an Osprey nest at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge on their computer.

“Dramatic setting, helpful staff, useful information”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

You see the dramatic sails over the center as you come west on US 50 over the bridge. It should be a visitor's first stop while in this area. Very helpful staff who provide excellent information, directions, maps, etc. Downstairs is a small museum about the area and a brief video. Lovely views of the bay and a number of walking trails with information plaques. This region does an excellent job with their signnage--signs are colorful and large making it easy to get around.

“What? No trash cans????”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

The whole "take your trash with you" thing isn't working. There are picnic tables, a nice playground, and wonderful view...but no place to put your trash when you're done eating. So, as people are wont to do, they throw their trash down for lack of a recepticle. BRING BACK THE TRASH CANS...who wants to see trash blowing in the water and under the slides????

“Just a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

Regular visitor's center with a nice river walk, nothing out of the ordinary but has what you'd expect.
