“Nice Visitor Center coming into Mammoth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This is a pretty nice visitor center with an information desk with several folks available to answer questions. Maps...some free, some not...along with numerous brochures and some gift and apparel items are available as well. Adequate parking area as you enter Mammoth for this center.
