  • We learned a lot about the Columbia River and why the dam is so important. A very interesting visit and a lot of it was thanks to the employee on duty - thank to Travis?

  • Very nice place to stop. The lady inside was very nice and informative. Has a great shaded area next to it for walking dogs And letting kids run off energy.

  • Great viewing point upon the The Dalles Dam. Short trail to walk to an excellent view poi t on the river bank just opposite to the Dam
  • Fascinating details about the dam history and operations. However, the tour is currently not operating and the displays are average for this type of experience. But the in-person, impromptu presentation by the ranger made the difference. Without her, I'd rate it 3 stars.
