“Great stop over”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Not only is this place free, but you can use the WiFi from the center without getting out of your rig! Agree with previous comments about noise from I-10 but for 1 night stop over with clean restrooms it’s a no brainer.

“Great Welcome Center”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2018

Overall Rating

This place is a really nice stop! The center is also a small museum and has a little movie theater with a 10 minute video about the history of the area. Ladies at the desk are really friendly, free hot coffee and clean restrooms. Separate RV and Truck section which was nice to minimize trucker noise. Right off highway so a little noisy... more

We stayed here two nights due to rainy weather. The ladies in the Welcome Center were super nice and helpful. Very roomy spots to park. We had absolutely no issues except for highway noise.

“Excelente lugar para descansar y continuar tu camino.”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Debes de tomar en cuenta que el lugar esta a un lado del HWY10. Es un poco ruidoso pero con unos tapones en los oidos lo arregla todo. El lugar es muy limpio y tienen seguridad las 24hrs. Es el lugar perfecto para descansar y continuar tu viaje sin tener que pagar por un lugar.

I know, it's a welcome center, it's right off I-10, its noisy however it's also free, very friendly and secure. I really appreciate what they're doing here with offering a free place to stay over night with nice clean bathrooms and 24 hour security. It's a lovely inviting place with noise being the only negative. Ear plugs. Make sure t... more

We read about this center and decided to come mid morning, spend a day in the area and one night. It was a great choice! Mid morning arrival allowed us a pull through beside an island of grass with a tree. We off loaded the car and went on a scenic ride - it was awesome. Returning in the afternoon we took in the Visitor Center. ... more

We didn't spend the night here, but we stopped for a few hours while Kelly had some internet work to do. This was another really nice rest stop, looks new. Nice bathrooms and visitor center with free coffee. Cell and internet were great.

The signs even say "overnight security provided" for those overnight stays. The place is huge, clean, and welcoming. Even free coffee in the Welcome Center!
