Why do You Need to Stop-by at JTNP Visitor Center Joshua Tree Reviews
It is always helpful to stop-by... Feb 15, 2014
I believe there are four visitor centers of Joshua Tree National Park. This review is particularly for the visitor center in the city or town of Joshua Tree.
Joshua Tree Visitor Center (Joshua City) is five miles north of Park West Entrance. From Highway 62, turn south onto Park Blvd. The center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week.
I surely encourage anyone visiting Joshua Tree National Park to stop by the visitor center.
During our visit, the park rangers on duty were very busy assisting other guests but they were welcoming, friendly, patient and knowledgeable about the park. They can suggest a realistic plan of what to do or where to go in the park that is very helpful especially for first-time visitors.
Guests are welcome to take those free maps and brochures of the park.
You may buy at the souvenir shop if you fancy for shirts, hats, books, trinkets, etc. Of course, prices are relatively expensive.
Visitors are welcome to get a copy of the National Parks Passport and get that stamp.
At the visitor center, guests are welcome to watch a twenty-minute film about the park, and get a general history.
I was impressed at the cleanliness of the bathrooms.
Next to the visitor center building is a coffee shop called; Park Rock Café and, free Wi-Fi is available.
