Talk to the rangers, see the film, and learn about the park here. You can get back country camping and hiking info here, buy maps and bandanas which you will need on long hikes, fill up your water bottles, and buy books and souvenirs.

I'll admit I was expecting a bit more after reading that this was the largest visitor center in the park and that it had a dinosaur fossil display.

This was certainly the best of the five Visitor Centers with a good video and helpful NPS Rangers and volunteers. The Wifi was great and we were able to walk the dog a bit along the roadway. This is a great place to start especially if you enter the park from Study Butte/Terlingua.

As always need to stop for the stamp. But that's not all, make sure to take a look at the exhibit and talk to your friendly ranger for tips on where to go and what to see if you haven't done your research already.
This is the HQ of the park, so it has good toilets, wifi and info booklets to help you. The park ranger was also really friendly to give us the info we needed to plan our trip.
