Worth A Visit
May 2021
The dam is worth a visit if travelling to Murphy NC. Conveniently located near the Bear Paw Community. Impressive views from the top and be sure to drive to the bottom of the dam. Picnic spots at the top and bottom of the dam. Interesting history!

NEAT PLACE TO VISIT
Oct 2020
We visited in the Fall of 2019 and found the entire Bear Paw Community not only intriguing, but impressive...a place we would definitely consider living one day, if not settled-in to our recently moved-in down-sized Retirement home. Got'a go to the Marina as we will do on our next Fall visit for sure. Great prices!

Impressive Dam
Jul 2020
Impressive dam and nice park area for a picnic. You can also drive down below the dam for another view. Restrooms were closed when we were there due to the virus, so be aware that there may not be facilities, and there is nothing nearby to purchase food or items to eat.

Awesome view

This is really worth it while if you would like to see a real Dam. Beautiful pictures of the lake and you can walk out on the side walk to look straight down the dam. You can also go to the bottom of the dam. This was a real treat for us.

Nice to see, even in the rain.

We stuck around the dam area for about 20 minutes and just had to check out the sights. It was great to see the large older dam - from above and below. Restrooms currently closed for public use.

Beautiful place to see the beauty all around you. Dams are just amazing structures and this one is no exception.

Nice dam

Happened to see the sign for the dam while driving around. Beautiful scenery. There is a small picnic area (and rest room), and there is a boat ramp.

Interesting

Stopped by here on our way back to Cleveland. Brought my dad which is 83, thought it would interest him since he did engineering type work. He was amazed at a 43 ton 80,000 horse power turbine sitting on display in front of overlook. It was something to see, but probably won’t come back. Long drive for 15 minutes. They do have a nice picnic area close as well as bathrooms. Heights make me anxious so it didn’t take me long to look but my dad liked it. You actually get to drive across the top of the dam. The scenery is beautiful.
