Stopped by to peer over the dam and was pleasantly surprised by a well organized informative visitors center staffed by a pleasant, helpful group of people. We learned a lot about the construction of the dam and the history of the area.

You climb through a rough canyon and through some interesting tunnels to pop out looking across a beautiful body of water in a lovely valley. The interpretive signs describing the building of the dam were very good and the further signs describing the geology and flora and fauna was also good. The views into the canyon were fantastic.

Would probably been more impressed if I had not been to Hoover Dam. It was okay, the movie tells a good story.

Take the time to get out of the vehicle and see the dam. It is interesting and a nice break from riding. Beautiful scenery. Toilets are interesting but scary....don't loose your personal belongings!
