“Bennett Dam - Good day outing”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Has a small area where there is dinosaur prints and a cafe open for the summer months. Was able to drive over the dam to get amazing views of both sides of it.

“A pleasure to work there.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The size of the dam is impressive. It's about a 20 minute drive from Hudson Hope.

“Standard big dam presentation”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

Big project from the '60's. Not as big as 3 Gorges or Itaipu, but important for BC. Nice, low-key presentation.
