In August there wasn't much water going over the dam, but the view of the lake and the canyon were amazing! Don't miss it.

This is an unusual attraction , but an interesting and well kept. The view is great and landscape is beautiful. A nice out of the way place so no crowds. Good for families or small groups. Couples seem to like it Also! Shows the awesome power of nature when tamed.

Absolutely beautiful. They say it is higher than Niagra Falls. Not sure about that, but a beautiful view that you have to see.

Take the road to the scenic overlook - the dam was built in 1938 and is bigger than Niagara Falls! You can also go to downstream from the dam and go rafting.

We were told you have to go to the dam to take the overlook walk, not true, just follow signs to Kerr Dam Overlook. There is no overlook from the parking area, you will find the trail and just keep walking down, you haven't reached the end until you can see the dam in front of you. Plenty of parking,... More

I love to see nature harnessed for power and I like a good hike. So in my trip to the area was glad to hear I could have both and with great views.

The trail down to the viewing area is steep. Most of it is made up of wooden steps with benches along the way. But once you get there the view is worth it. Looking towards the Mission Mountains looming above and behind the river is a great photo opportunity. The roar of the water going over the damn is impressive.

Peace and quiet apart from the roaring water! Plenty of nature around and super views of the dam. About 300 steps though.

Kerr Dam is a really cool place to stop by, it is definitely worth the three-hundred steps it takes to get to the look out point.
