I really cannot say too much about this place without giving away the hint in my title. It is an amazing place to visit. Paved pathways, restrooms and a small but efficient visitors center.

We love boating in different lakes and checking out the dams. Kinzua is a beautiful rec area for outdoor people! Dam area has nice paved walkways and clean facilities. Nice little rustic trail to connect to Big Bend area.

The setting of this dam is what makes it well worth a visit. Convenient to Warren and surrounded by green and easily accessible for those who can't walk very far. The dam is not anywhere near as large as we expected by very photogenic. The visitor center is small but gives a very good summary of construction, the impact on... More

The visitor's center is great because they show you information and facts about the dam; how it was built, where it was built, all about the local wildlife, and more!
