Attention visitors to the Interpretive Center: we are experiencing a water pressure issue that has forced us to temporarily close the bathrooms in the Interpretive Center. There is an ADA accessible porta-potty in our parking lot and we are working on solutions and hope to have the plumbing back up and running very soon! Please bring your own drinking water as well. We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.
Park County’s COVID Community Level has been classified as “Medium.” Per the latest guidance from the CDC, we request that all visitors wear masks while inside the interpretive center and maintain social distancing.
For more information about our health & safety protocols, please visit our Coronavirus page.
The Heart Mountain Interpretive Center is located between the towns of Cody and Powell on highway 14A in northwest Wyoming. 15 minutes from Cody and 10 minutes from Powell, visitors will see the iconic red brick chimney of the original hospital structure on the hill overlooking the site as they are approaching the turn onto Road 19. This corner is also marked by two very large trees. Once visitors proceed down Road 19 and turn right onto the interpretive center road, the driveway circles around the structure ending at the parking lot.
We are located approximately one hour from the east entrance of Yellowstone Park. Check out our Visit page for more information on hiking Heart Mountain, things to see and do in Powell and Cody, and exploring the nation’s first national park!
