We hiked across the dam and down into the spillway. There are a couple of waterfalls there, which I am thinking would be spectacular with a bit of water.

I love Chase State Fishing Lake. Hiking around the hills is an experience as you explore around the stone outcroppings and discover the multi-level waterfalls at the outtake end of the lake. Beautiful place!
