A small visitor center with a few exhibits, most of which recite some of the same information that the other centers describe, so don't feel that you need to add it to your list. In addition, after reading the exhibit material I had two questions and the rangers couldn't answer either one. At least they could study their area and prepare. We stopped because we wanted to see the hot springs, but they turned out to be a disappointing muddy, poorly defined mess. A short nature walk has some clearly labeled fauna that was interesting. This center is kind of out of the way in the southeast corner, so if you come in to Sunrise it might be possible, but otherwise I wouldn't include it on your list.

It was somewhat small but a pretty good museum. They have a small gift shop there also. They have a slice from a several hundred year old tree outside too.
There is an easy interpretive trail right outside, for families.

Nice little center. Has a couple displays and small gift shop. Seems like mostly there for the restrooms and to check in campers. Pretty little stream running along the side of it and there is a slice of a huge log with dates behind the center.

This is an informative little visitors center. It’s smaller than the one at Paradise and the one at Sunrise. Nonetheless there are some interesting exhibits here, including numerous taxidermied animals, including a bear. Parking is very limited and is only for 30 minutes at a time. There are parking areas elsewhere in the campground that can be used if this one is full. Visit the hot spring at the same time.

This visitor center had some interesting information about the park and was conveniently right next door to the campground. However, I had a rather upsetting experience on Friday afternoon when visiting with my two-year-old. Upon entering the visitor center, I was a little disappointed that there was no area for small children like there had been at the Olympic National Park headquarters, but as it was a small visitor center, it didn't surprise me. My daughter had fun pointing out the animals she recognized behind a display case for a few minutes. Then she noticed a small table with several pine cones on it (as well as cones from different evergreen trees besides pines). She got excited and picked up one of the pine cones and started walking around the visitor center with it, talking to herself and moving it around the 3D park map. Whenever one of my children goes to touch something, I always ask myself if I should take it away. I don't let them walk off-trail in the parks or pick the flowers, and I don't let them harass the small wildlife such as birds and rodents. I try to obey every park rule in existence, respecting quiet times at campgrounds, packing in and out, and never going above the speed limit even when other cars are swerving around me at twice the speed. I don't want to negatively impact the fragile environments that the parks are tasked with protecting. But this vigilance does get exhausting as the mother of a two-year-old and three-year-old who want to touch everything. And letting my daughter walk around holding this ordinary pine cone, that had already been removed from the natural environment and of which there were hundreds of thousands more right outside the visitor center, seemed harmless enough. Until the ranger came up to me and said, "That's not the pine cone from the table, is it?" as if I had truly done something terrible. "Yes, it is," I replied cautiously. He gave me a disgusted look and grabbed it from my daughter, saying, in the most condescending voice possible, "I'm going to put this back for the sake of other children can learn about pine cones." Despite the confusing grammar of the sentence, the most bewildering part of the encounter was that she was the only child in the building. It's not like there was a line of children waiting to look at it. This may seem like a small, trivial encounter, but it got me thinking about the fact that national parks should be more welcoming to young children. The junior ranger program is great, but it consists of workbooks for older kids who can read and write. And the national parks should be for everyone. Why not start encouraging children to develop a love for nature as soon as possible, before screen time takes over their lives? If we want people to care about the environment, and to learn about important issues such as climate change, deforestation, and pollution, and hopefully vote to continue protecting our wild places, then we need to help foster a love for the outdoors from the very beginning. Most of my friends with small kids go to Disneyland or a waterpark in the summer. But I think national parks should be destinations for children of any age. So let's just agree that's it's harmless enough for the children to touch the pine cones.

After hours of driving, this was our first exposure to the National Park. The visitor center has interesting information throughout. The rangers are friendly and informative. We were encouraged to do the Silver Falls hike from the trailhead that is only a short distance from the visitor center. This is also a campground, so in July it was very busy. We were still able to find parking and access the river along footpaths that wind through the trees before starting our hike to the impressive waterfall.

If you enter the park via the South East side, this is the visitor center you'll reach first (provided it's open of course). It's a nice center, with some good exhibits and history. It definitely is set up for the younger crowd, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy it as an adult.

There's a ranger stationed there who will give you all the information you want, and of course, the NPS Passport stamp.

The Rangers staff was super helpful and we were able to determine the best trail to hike for the needs of our group!

This is probably the least visited center in the park since it has little to see inside and the gift shop is minimal. The bathrooms were out of order when we were there also. The employees were super nice and location is near several trails. For some reason on the main road it only says that the campground is there and no mention of the visitor center.

While we were in the area we hiked the Silver Falls Trail. It can be accessed from three different points - check with a ranger or pick up an information sheet for the Ohanapecosh area. We walked along the river - very enjoyable - lots of cascades. There was a great amount of snow this year so the river is beautiful. Excellent overlooks in several places. Be sure to cross the bridge for an especially good view of the falls.
