The visitor center is always a work in progress, with volunteers adding new displays and upgrading existing ones. 


Volunteers also serve at a sales counter where many nature publications and maps can be purchased and free brochures obtained. 


All profits from sales are used by the South Yuba River Park Association(SYRPA) to enhance the park and encourage visitors to return.


The South Yuba River State Park ranger station is in the same building as the visitor center, and fully-plumbed rest rooms are out back.
