The Alan Bible Visitor Center, built in 1966 has been brought into the 21st century while preserving its historic elements. Improvements include bringing its many systems up to code, improving accessibility throughout the building and making it more climate friendly by conserving and producing energy.

Our Visitor Center volunteers can answer all your park questions and they have a wealth of knowledge about the park, it's history, and things to do.

The Visitor Center is located outside the park entrance (no fee required) near Boulder City.

Those driving by the visitor center site will notice the new solar panel array on the property. These nine panels and other improvements will earn the Alan Bible Visitor Center a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver rating, a unique award for a historic building.

Other changes are more subtle; an exciting new award winning park film, the improved bookstore carries many new educational and nature gift items and the cactus garden will have improved sidewalks and masonry walls.
