This is a small interpretive center but full of good information. There is a nice video offered. It is at the end of the river walk trail.

The center is well done and worth your time. There were also two personnel on duty who were able to answer questions about the monument and canoeing through it.

Small, but very well set up. Historic video is worth viewing. Very helpful Ranger. Go outside and walk down to the river; beautiful and very serene. There are informational signs all along the river walk.

There are restrooms in the Interpretive Center, but, as I understand it, there are none in the Monument. I seem to remember that one of the guided canoe trip sites mentioned pit toilets at one spot only, but I could be wrong... More
