We visited while driving out of Letchworth State Park. There were lots of birds flying around and we took some quick pictures. Next time we visit we'd like to do the tour to learn more about the dam and it's construction. Worth a stop!

Never have been on a dam tour before but this was very interesting. It begins with a short walk to almost the bottom of the dam. The Mt Morris Dam is ran by the Army Corps of Engineers, so no backpacks, purses or drinks allowed....More

You can stop at the Visitors Center and just gaze at the dam or you can stay long enough to take a tour which I highly recommend. Videos and display in the Center give you the history but the up close look on the tour...More

Yes, the dam is wheelchair accessible. There is quite a ramp to get down to the top of the dam. You'll need a good battery or a healthy pusher to get you back up after your visit.
