The dam is breathtaking and free to visit. The volunteers who ferry visitors back and forth from parking were very friendly a pleasant surprise on a rainy day. A must see. Dogs are also welcome.

The view from the dam breathtaking, definitely worth a stop to see it. It is easily accesable, and there is a small information center. Very beautiful spot!

It’s free so why not check it out? I loved all the information on how it was built. There’s a good film about it.
