I brought my sons to this attraction. Our favorite thing to do was skip stones in the river. The water flowing off the dam was really peaceful. There are many areas to picnic and some great, short hiking trails in the area.

I love going here to view the water on a pretty day. It is only 10 mins from our house. You can see families walking around and exploring. It is not a big place but beautiful none the less.

There's not much to see here except a weir type dam. The facility was built to provide power to the local area in the early 1900's. Because of unpredictable rainfall and inefficiency of the outdated equipment, the power house was dismantled back in the 40's...More

Station in ruins, not much to see. Water stinks, no really..stinky. Right next to Mt. Trashmore, the dump that takes everyones trash in a 2 hour radius. Could and should be nice but it never will be thanks to dump.
