If you are looking for a great outdoor activity in the Allegheny national Forest, you must visit the Kinzua Dam! The scenery is breathtaking, especially if you visit during the Autumn foliage time! Great hiking trails as well.

Very nice, clean large areas to park and explore. Be sure to start your visit a the Dams base at the Parks Office. Many pieces of printed materials to help guide you to enjoyment..

A massive dam on the Allegheny River. I've visited it many times, even had a chance to tour the interior of the dam. Another great view is from the fishing pier on the opposite side. Worth the drive. Visit the fish nursery while you are on that side!!

Definitely go during the fall. It's a great place to see the beautiful autumn colors. There was some construction but not too long to get around it.

Dam breast and spillway pretty cool. Educational info and walks. Very nice area to visit in fall. Summer watersports attraction. Find Rimrock overlook and explore awesome boulder formations!

We went to the dam after Rim Rock, so we were less than awestruck. It's a easy stop, so you should definitely do it.

I have seen bigger dams going from Ontario to Quebec....not really sure what the attraction is supposed to be. The scenery around, however, is lovely.....that's about it!!!
