It's your average visitor center. Small things to purchase. ( ornaments, books, etc) friendly staff, bathrooms on site. They do have bottled water and some candy like snacks.

This has it all, a quick walk on handicap accessible trails to an overlook, a hard day hike into the gorge or an overnight backpack trip. Park there and get info from the friendly ranges. Also lots of books and maps about the surrounding area.
