Cool destination on our way to the train and the steamboat. Stopped to take some photos. We did not go in the visitor center that we remained outside and took some very cool photos. more »
Lovely place to bring your family, especially late spring & fall when temps. are cooler. Both the young & the young at heart will enjoy thier visit. Loved the Sturgeon above water & below water viewing ponds. Bring a handful of quarters to buy feed pellets for trout & salmon & a picnic to feed your family. Well kept grounds, nice lil gift shop. Good info at each exhibit. Took my 70 yr young MILaw, she really enjoyed her visit!! Paved Trails: stroller/wheelchair/walker friendly. No entry or parking fees.
GET HYPE! this is a dam good time!!! Are you out at Multnomah Falls? Then take the time to take yourself HERE! You can tour the hydroelectric facility during specific hours, and read so much cool stuff at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers facility here - from the history of the mountain range to the history of the area from native americans to now, and how the dam and hydroelectric facilities operate. You can walk around and look at all the fish on the fish ladder, and go down into the building and look through the glass at the fish and LAMPREY EELS in the water and learn and observe the native fish in the river. You can just walk around the gorgeous fields or go down to the river and fish! This was one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable things I did. Forget all those crowds at the waterfalls for a few lousy instagram shots. Get yourself to this dam.
