The highlight of the visitor center is the topographical map which provides a good orientation to the unique geography of central southern Utah. There are stuffed animals and birds which could be particularly interesting for children.

This was a good stop with some excellent information on local plants, soils, and animals. Maps with hiking and driving information were also available. Down side is they aren't able to tell you where local historic sites (petroglyphs and pictographs) are located.

Sometimes we bypass the various visitor centers because we're in a hurry to get somewhere but, more and more, we're finding that BLM or other government visitor centers are the highest priority of where we should be going. This center has great exhibits - including...More
