Smokey’s Office

Inside this Headquarters building is the Forest Service Information Center which features an animatronic Smokey Bear in his Office. This version of Smokey was inspired by Rudy Wendelin’s famous painting, “Smokey’s Fan Mail.” As patrons approach, Smokey comes alive and greets patrons with his signature line... “Only you can prevent forest fires!”

The Lodge

Modeled after a 1920’s rustic lodge, and fashioned out of pine, the lodge features original Forest Service artifacts and hand-painted rugs. It also features an interactive Forest Service media map that allows you to locate a national forest near you.

The Mini-Forest

In the mini-forest is a place to rest while taking in the sounds of the forest and videos sharing National Forest topics to include saving endangered species, recreation and more.

Hours of Operation

8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Closed weekends and Federal Holidays.
