“Spectacular Views!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

GReat place to visit. You can either enter the "Croton Gorge Park" and look at Dam or take Croton Dam Road, which is a dead end ending at the bridge that overlooks the dam. The views from up there are excellent. You will find a lot of cars pulled over along the side of the dead end street to take walks or simply to enjoy the view from up there. Plus it's free!! You can see the closed roadway in my photo above.

“Directions”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The waterfall is at one end of the dam. GPS took me to the edge of the dam away from the waterfall. Cannot drive across the dam. Must park there and walk across the dam to see the spectacular terraced dam and waterfall. The dam overlooks Croton Gorge Park. Walking from the top of the dam to the park below is not ideal, along a 2 lane road with minimal shoulder. Better to drive to Croton Gorge Park for the second viewpoint.

“Great Scenery for taking picture and just scaring at”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I was there in mid summer. It was a sunny great day. The only problem is parking if you want to go up and stand on the dam! Don't forget to do it for sure just park at the start of closed road and walk 2 min and you'll be on top of a scenery!!
DO go down and look at this dam from its base as well.
