This location is close enough to many dams in the area that one can visit many of them in the same day. They are all worth seeing.

It you are a fan of dams, then this is an interesting little spot. There are picnic tables, and a few shady areas to make this a nice place for a family outing.

Went to the bottom, then drove back and across. Great views from both. As with most dams and spillways, the enormity gets to you once you arrive at the bottom where the water is flowing rather quickly.

Yes, at the base of the dam there is a picnic spot. We fished there (or tried to) but the current was moving too fast. There is an area close by where you can rent a boat and fish on the lake.
