There is a lot to see here, the dam, the water in the reservoir, picnic area, boating, the flow under the dam, and fabulous hike downriver, and a tour of the dam. Ample parking and outgoing personnel in the center.

Very colorful place. Look in the water and see the huge carp. You can walk around and read the history. See the old turbines. Nice to see things up close.

Wort stopping and visiting. Walk around the area and go the overlooks. The area to the west was quiet and and had a rock to sit on and I was able to meditate on the view.

Only gets a 4 just because the elevator was broken and we didn't get to go into the dam to see the insides. We took the dam tour, we took some dam pictures, and we asked some dam questions! It was a dam good time!...More

Made a quick drop by here to get a map of the area.. the attendants here were so nice and anxious to offer up all the information we needed and more. Located right on the damn. Pretty cool and good parking.

Not very spectacular dam, you can get a better view of it from the parking to the right right after you passed it on the way to Dutch John. Very nice and informative staff though.
