Located in a yurt just after the park entrance, the Welcome Center at Smith Rock State Park is a great information stop.
Both for first-timers for the exhibits and repeat visitors for special events held there. Hours are posted at the park monthly. They vary depending on visitation levels, holidays, events and available volunteer staffing.
November through February hours are 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM Saturday and Sunday.
NOTE: THE WElcome Center will be closed Saturday January 27th and Saturday February 3rd for environmental educator training. Annual parking passes can be purchased at Terrebonne Thriftway.
Whether it be just to answer where to get the best view of the climbers, or to issue your annual parking pass, they are eager to help. The yurt is often staffed with seasonal experts from different disciplines, such as botany and history.
