There are some exhibits and a movie to watch but this visitor center is more about what the area surrounding it can provide to hikers, bikers and their ilk.

This recreational area is huge, so It is hard to make a general statement about it, but I can say that the Satiwa cultural center is a nice flat 1/4 mile hike from the parking lot.
