The National Park Visitors Center had a wide variety of CD's, books, maps, guides and souvenir items. The 'Ranger' behind the desk was quite helpful. I found some of the gift items somewhat pricey (a local coffee mug was $29.95).

A person can get all the information about the area and even back country permits for backpacking. A must visit center for anyone new to the Mammoth Lake area.

Rangers at the center were very professional and full of information about the area. The recommendations were spot on which made our hiking trips enjoyable. It was a good idea to visit the center before starting our 4 day hiking vacation.

The people who work here are very well informed. We especially like to check with them about the Fall colors. They keep close track of where the leaves are changing and can point you in the right direction. Nice looking building as well.

after driving to Mammoth wanted some information on the hot springs - none available except at hot tubs at hotels. also the kids behind the desk weren't that friendly - they seemed like we were bothering them....the pamplets were plentiful and also coupons for the area...just disappointed with the staff.
