I didn't buy any souvenirs, but did buy some sandwiches to have in place of the way overpriced dinner at the Lodge. There are only 2 bathroom stalls inside the building. It is what it is.

We just walked around the village, checked out the lodge, visitors' center and gift shop. The restroom situation was insane, but I'd go back!
