Small center, easy to find right on the point...hwy & main drag. Found several brochures, but nothing as personable as talking to the employee; formerly from my home state. Sort of challenging while driving of the parking lot... look both ways!

The Visitor Center has all the information to make your stay or future plans. They know all the people and places to visit, and you can get the introduction to people you need to know to get things done. I loved this area!

Headed into Rocky Mountain National Park this is a must stop to find out about the town of Grand Lake and area services. Can not miss it. Why 34 left takes you to the park to the right Grand Lake.

Enjoyed our visit there. The staff was polite. One staff member warned me to not carry my umbrella opened during the rain because of lightning. The bathrooms were clean. I got a kick out of the "Pull Gently" signs. The gift shop was competitively priced....More

I considered many cabins in the area. They were listed under VRBO. Many of them looked great. The prices varied. Good Luck. We really enjoyed the Gateway Inn if a cabin doesn't work out.
