This is an excellent stop! We went on the tour and learned so much about the workings of the dam. Paige was a fun tour guide and encouraged us to ask questions. Our 7yr old Grand was able to do this tour with no problems.

This is a lovely area, and the marina too is delightful with a great shop selling some really cool stuff. There are plenty of scenic overlooks to stop at, and plenty to look at and do. It's well worth visiting especially in good clear weather.

There is a fee to drive in but you can purchase the national park pass. The restrooms by the shore were closed but the Campground shop has 24hr restrooms and washers/dryers and even showers. You have to pay $2 for 15 minutes of water.

Yes it is accessible in March -- probably no different than July. The weather is cool which would make for nice hiking and sightseeing -- better than July! However, Springtime can be windy.
