“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Tom was a great tour guide. The grounds are very nice. There is a playground, a picnic area and a small museum. The tour was informative. The walk down the hill to the dam was not bad, but it was difficult for some of our group to come back up. It was a warm day, which made it harder. The only thing that would make the tour better is a shuttle to bring you to the top.

“Learned So Much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Having grown up in Rochester, I found the information on the Mt. Morris Dam, and how it has saved Rochester from floods, was really interesting. I admit, that if you are not from the area, You might not be as impressed with the site. It was built by the Army Corps of Engineers, has a picnic area, playground area, and free tours of the dam.

“Dam Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This was a decent guided tour for the family. There is a fair amount of uphill walking involved so not accommodating to those with disabilities. The tour guide was informative.

“Never Been on Tour, but Park is Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Although they offer tours, because they are not handicapped accessible, I cannot enjoy that option. Yet, the park where the dam is located is awesome. They have a few pavilions where it is first come, first serve. The one on the far left part of the parking lot has a ring with benches around a fire pit. The dam area is fenced safely at the edge of the gorge and offers a spectacular view. There is a fairly new playground built that has a multitude of slides and climbing structures that entice kids for hours. Picnic tables close by make it easy to bring a lunch or grill food at the other areas too. The entrance to the park is free verses the other side, which is the state park.
