I like to stop and visit the info centers and gift shops. I was not disappointed by the vis center. The building sits right on the beach. The wind was howling 40-50 mph so it was fun to stand inside and watch the waves for...More

Wish I could have a house here. From inside the views were great and the help very friendly. This is a cavernous place with books on the region, t-shirts and plenty of stuff to buy. Too bad everything's so expensive at gift shops.

Good visitors center. I found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful, and there is lots of general information about Redwood NP. It contains (of course) mugs, keychains and other 'stuff' to buy, which somewhat surprisingly includes products made in the region as well as...More

Stopped for restrooms and park stamps for collectors book. We walked down to the beach and learned what a sneaker was in the tsunami vocabulary world. Very clean restrooms!!! Helpful staff with directions to local attractions.

Located just south of Orick, the visitor center is easy to get to off of Highway 101. It sits on the beach near the mouth of Redwood Creek and has great resources for visitors to Redwood National Park. If nothing else, it is a convenient...More

We LOVE a good NPS Visitor Center, the gift shop, the Junior Ranger guides, the orientation videos and the opportunity for a posed photo with the welcome sign. Unfortunately, this Center was missing most of this. We left scratching our heads wondering "why doesn't NPS...More
