“Impressive”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Kerr Dam is a really cool place to stop by, it is definitely worth the three-hundred steps it takes to get to the look out point.

“Short drive to Kerr Dam”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We took the short 7 mile drive to see Kerr Dam south of Polson. Interesting rock formations below the dam along the Flathead
River. The employee housing area below the dam is very well maintained. There doesn't appear to be any tours available to see the powerhouse but, in season, there is a scenic overlook that should be worth your time.

“Nice spot.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Kerr Dam is located on the Flathead river and holds an extra 10ft of water in Flathead Lake and is taller than Niagara falls. A nice concrete arch dam with good views all around and well worth a detour if you are in the area. You can drive down to the Flathead River, but for the best views drive to the scenic overlook [signed] and walk down the steps to the viewing platform

“Beautiful vacation water !!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The hike to the Kerr Dam is an easy walk and well worth going to. The water spilling over is vacation type water and crystal clear.

“Awesome”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We only found out about this dam by chance and wondered when we were driving out to it if it would be worth it. Wow, it certainly was. Yes there are lots of steps but it is amazing when you get down there. We were the only people there, when we visited, and I found it hard to believe that it isn't advertised more.
