This is the first place my son and I stopped at after arriving in Sedona coming from Flagstaff via the scenic highway 89. The gentleman who waited on us was very helpful and knowledgeable. He outlined a map for us showing how to get to our basic destinations such as our hotel which was 23 miles outside of town. Without... More

Well worth seeing, the views are amazing. Got some great pictures here. Would be best if you go through the town all the way to the Hilton Hotel for the best views. Lots of shops and restaurants in the town they even offer tours. Very winding well maintained road. Would recommend if you are in the area for stunning desert... More

We stopped at the Gateway Visitor Center and Ranger Station on our way into Sedona, and got lots of useful advice on touring both the Sedona area and the Grand Canyon. Both a ranger and a very well informed volunteer spent a lot of time with us to ensure that we made the best use of our time while in... More

As you come up Rt. 179 from the south, the Red Rock Visitor Center and Ranger Station is located on the right, just at the start of Red Rock Country. It provides an ideal overview of the area and geology, especially if you have never been to the red rock area previously. Even if you have, it’s a great refresher.... More

The Forest Service has built a great visitor center as you approach Sedona on Highway 179. Whether is is hiking, biking or you just want to learn more about the geology and history of the area this is the place to stop.

After reading TripAdvisor Reviews, I was confused and I phoned the Gateway Visitors Center. Our experience at the Gateway Visitors Center was phenomenal. Apparently, there is a Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center and there are 2 Gateway Visitors Centers - West 89A (open seasonally) and the primary location on State Highway (SH) 179, South of Village of Oak Creek (about...

We went the the visitor center the first morning we were in Sedona. We were looking for some advice as to which parking pass to buy for our visit and we got the answers we needed. The staff and volunteers were all very friendly, patient and beyond helpful. We purchased the America The Beautiful Land Pass while we were there... More
