The interpretive centre is located approximately 10 km into the park. Here, daily talks, washroom facilities, snacks, and souvenirs are available.
The building housing the Interpretive Centre is a re-creation of the bunkhouse which once housed the single men who worked and lived here. In the late 1800s and well into the mid-1950s, Big Salmon River was a flourishing logging, fishing and shipbuilding community.
The Interpretive Centre houses many displays of original artifacts and old photographs from the era when the paternalistic Pejepscot Paper Company provided housing, a schoolhouse, community centre and even electricity for the settlement at Big Salmon River.
