Excellent place to visit. The information center has great information and a 30 minute film that gave a great overview. Then the drive to the various points finished it off wonderfully. The ranger at the information center was friendly and knowledge. I really enjoyed talking to him. At the Tavern House (which had apparently just reopened after renovations) the gentleman there provided great information and was also super friendly. Great visit and I am glad we visited!
