Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center

Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center provides information and interpretive exhibits about the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande and surrounding countryside. In the center's bookstore, operated by the nonprofit Public Lands Interpretive Association, visitors can find books, maps, and educational gifts and toys. Commercial outfitters use the visitor center and its parking lot as a staging area for daytrips down the Lower Gorge of the Rio Grande. The handsome building and its veranda overlooks the river and provides a convenient spot for watching rafts, canoes, and kayaks floating downstream.
