Rangers that staff the visitors center are nice. A very small selection of souvenirs available. The part I liked the most was the 3-D topographical map of Mount Rainier National Park with many of the trails. There are displays of local wildlife as well.

Perfect for pull-up camping with plenty of options to explore around. We were here during the summer and it was a beautiful trip. The facilities are clean, plenty of things to explore.

This is a nice visitor center to pair with the silver falls hike that is accessed here. Lots of information on the local wildlife and flora. Our daughter really got a kick out of it.
