The website said $30 but they charged $35, and when I told the person working at the gate, he was rude. The visitor center on the west side was very small and had little to offer. We went in mid-June but most all the road...More

You have to do this if you come to the park. Make sure and check the road status before you go, it sometimes doesn't open till late July. This can make accessing the park difficult because you have to drive 2 hours around the park...More
