When I visited the place sometime in 2018, I was amazed by what I saw at the dam. The road networks are awesome. I saw fishermen fishing at the dam. I also learnt that Usman dam is the main source of water supply within FCT and environs. The water is treated and healthy for consumption. The location is perfect for hiking as well.

A very peaceful area away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nice and serene environment. You can hike the mountain, go fishing or canoe riding, setup a picnic with your friends, take nice pictures and just soak in the view.

I had a great afternoon driving here and walking around the dam. Great views, fresh air, and apparently quite safe too.

Used to be an idyllic well kept secret Nest abuja. Is now taken over by civilisation and careless pollution. Is a pity, however, still worth to visit

Visited the dam in November 2014 with a group of friends and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable and told us the history of the dam and many interesting facts. We climbed some of the hills surrounding the dam and if you are the adventurous type you can take a canoe ride on the lake. Motorized boats are not allowed. After the canoe ride we took a long hike through the property. if you are the outdoor type you should visit this place. Ideal for picnics, group hikes etc.

The dam itself is a wonderful sight, the guys manning the two check point gates begging for money was the downside.
