  • Traveling from California and just decided to take a drive towards the Gorge. We decided to stop anywhere along the way that peaked our interest. When we saw this, we decided to check it out. We are glad we stopped. The volume of water spilling over was an amazing site to see! Wow, that's a lot of water coming from the spillway! There are two sets of spillways and these were all wide open. The ones on the other side were all closed. We timed it just right to see them.
  • Very cool attraction. You get to see the work of the US army up front and get a view at the inner workings of a hydroelectric dam. The grounds also have special and benches for a picnic, but the best part was seeing salmon go up the fish ladder. Very interesting.
