Visitor Center

Bryce Canyon Visitor Center. Even if you're anxious to hit the hoodoos, the visitor center, just to your right after the park-entry pay station, is the best place to start if you want to know what you're looking at and how it got there. Rangers staff a counter where you can ask questions or let them map out an itinerary of "must-sees" based on your time and physical abilities. There are also multimedia exhibits, books, maps, and backcountry camping permits for sale. First aid, emergency, and lost-and-found services are offered here, along with free Wi-Fi. Do all your phone business here; it may be the last place in the park where you get cell reception. Hwy. 63, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, 84764. 435/834–5322; www.nps.gov/brca. May–Sept., daily 8–8; Apr. and Oct., daily 8–6; Nov.–Mar., daily 8–4:30.
