Watched a video in the visitor's center about the building of the dam. Quite a feat given it was completed in 1910. You can walk across the dam and see downstream and the huge reservoir. Worth the time

This is a quick stop. You can walk across the top of the damn and then go inside the visitors center. There is an interesting movie you can watch about all of the issues they had when trying to build this damn.

Amazing dam when you think about what it took to build it. The drop off is nauseating. The visitor's center is really nice. Nice selection of books and presentation. This is worth a visit and it's free!

Sights are amazing and the stories behind the building of the dam are impressive. You can walk right out on the dam which gives an amazing view.

Quick stop but worth seeing the dam and lake from a different view. The self guided tour and movie is quick and interesting.
