Owner description: The W.A.C. Bennett Dam Visitor Centre is now closed for the season and will re-open on May 20th, 2017. We're sorry we missed you but hope that you will visit us next season to enjoy our exhibits, interactive games, cafe and gift shop. The Visitor Centre is fun and engaging for all ages and interests. You can also take an optional guided tour across the dam to see one the world's largest earth-fill structures up close, and BC's largest reservoir, Williston Lake. It's an amazing experience that should not be missed. Visit our website for more information and plan your upcoming visit.

“Bennett Dam - Good day outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

Has a small area where there is dinosaur prints and a cafe open for the summer months. Was able to drive over the dam to get amazing views of both sides of it.

“A pleasure to work there.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

The size of the dam is impressive. It's about a 20 minute drive from Hudson Hope.

“Standard big dam presentation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Big project from the '60's. Not as big as 3 Gorges or Itaipu, but important for BC. Nice, low-key presentation.
