Bothwell Lodge

Bothwell Lodge provides a mostly level parking lot with an accessible water fountain and information kiosk adjacent to it. The nearby single-toilet, unisex restrooms have side-transfer toilets and lever-handled faucets.

From the parking lot, a semi-packed gravel path leads to the visitor center. The path does have a slope. In the visitor center, guests can view an interpretive video and find various park information, books and souvenirs. The lodge, constructed in the late 1890s, has four levels with narrow doorways and more than 200 short, steep steps. Modifications cannot be made without altering the historic fabric of the structure; therefore, the lodge may not be accessible to all visitors. 

The visitor center features an alternative flip-book tour available for viewing. The lodge does not having heating or cooling and is subject to external temperatures.
