“Very nice center and surrounding area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2008

This is a lovely visitor's center and is also the hub of the parks and recreation department for this area. There are tall trees and ground squirrels all around it. You can watch a film, get lots of brochures, visit the lovely gift shop, and just enjoy the outdoors for a while here.
