Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They have lots of brochures, maps, etc here. Judy was so helpful. I was looking for easy hikes and I did the two she recommended - River Trail and Monarch Lake, and I was not disappointed! I highly recommend stopping here at the starting your visit!

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. We found a great selection of gifts.We didn't eat there. The view is great there. I appreciated the webcam the weeks before our visit to help me decide what to wear. Do not attempt the hikes outside unless you are accustomed to the elevation.

We stopped in because we wanted to know if there was a trail around the lake (there isn't), but the helpful lady steered us to Monarch Lake, a slight drive away. We were glad she did; the hike was everything she said it would be.
Plenty of pamphlets and information on the area in addition, plus phone books for your use if you need them. A worthwhile stop for us.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. With the floods, RMNP was closed. So we came in looking for other hikes. He pointed us in the right direction and we had a great hike. The facility is very clean and full of info on the local area. This is a great first stop when you come into town; and as it is right there when you arrive, it makes sense to stop.

The ladies staffing the visitor center the day we stopped in offered many interesting suggestions for our day in Grand Lake. They asked about our interests, provided us with maps, brochures and booklets about the town and pointed out the coupons available for discount prices available for many of the attractions. As a result, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

This freezes over for about 6 months out of the year, but in the summer months of July and August is just beautiful. Great destination for a road trip for sure.

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!
