Gljúfrastofa is the name given to the National Park Visitor Centre in Ásbyrgi, in the Northern Territory of the Park. Its purpose is to provide comprehensive information about the Park, its surroundings, hiking trails, natural attractions, history, services and recreational options. 

The National Park is open to visitors all year round. A large campground with facilities for tents, trailer tents and recreational vehicles can be found in Ásbyrgi. Bookings are not needed for the campground, but groups of cars and caravans are asked to inform about their arrival in advance.

The Ásbyrgi campground is open from 15th of May to 30th of September and in Vesturdalur from 7th of June to 15th of September, with services and supervision. Visitors who plan to stay in the National Park at other times of the year need to contact the National Park Manager.
