You can see for miles and also watch the boats out in the water. Bring some fish food or bread to feed the carp that are begging for food at the bottom of the dam.

I grew up in this area and watched as this dam was built years ago, so I always make it a point to do a little sightseeing, just to enjoy the view up the Kinzua Valley

The area around is very scenic and great countryside, I was there when the weather was a little cool, but with a coat on did not spoil my visit to admire the workmanship and beauty of the Dam.
I would travel hundreds of miles to visit, but if you are in the area then worth a visit.

We visited Kinzua Dam area on a Sunday. One can not really walk over the dam any longer, can only walk a few yards onto it. There are carp at the bottom begging for food as usual so I you have kids you can have them toss bread over the edge to feed those ugly fish. This area is very pretty (but probably much prettier when there are leaves on trees - - we visited in April and it still looked like winter.) A few miles east of the dam is a "Rim Overlook" that was indicated to be an "easy" hike but there were lots of steps and it was uphill coming back, so its not as easy as the tour books indicated! It does not look over the dam, but looks over the river. Very pretty.

Water nice, trees very nice.....that's it. Guess this all depends upon one's age and their ability to partake in activities available.
