We really wanted to see the falls, but were worried after a few miles that we were not going the right way. We found it, though, and it was so worth it. The drive through the flatlands was actually nice. We saw antelope and a coyote, then rabbits and mule deer. It was cold and windy the day we went... 更多
One of the best picnic areas around Great Falls. It looks a bit barren on the drive but you drop down on the river below the dam. Great facilities and lots of tables. There is also an area for large groups. There is also a large eagles nest at the far end of the island. This year there were three... 更多
Came here for the first time this year and really enjoyed seeing what the "Great Falls" were like. I came here in the summer so there wasn't a lot of water on the falls but hear if you go in the spring time it's really neat to see. There is a great grassy area for picnics with tables that is... 更多
To get to the dam, you need to drive about 15 miles outside of the city through the prairie. Then you cross the river on a swaying pedestrian suspension bridge to get to an island with a fine view of the falls and dam, along with the sheer cliffs along the river. There are toilets at the parking lot and... 更多
I thought that all of the falls were now under water due to the dams put in place. But this falls, the largest of them all, can still be seen, and shouldn't be missed. It's also a great place for a picnic.
This is the location of the first falls Lewis & Clark encountered on the Missouri The dam was built on the site. You view the dam from an island reached by a suspension bridge and it has a lively grassy picnic area as well as a covered area. A small walk takes you to the viewing area and explanatory signs.
There are several scenic overviews, culminating in a view of the dam and a dramatic end, which transforms the Missouri River to a dribble.
The island park is a great adventure to hold a picnic and enjoy the power of the dam. A very short hike allows you to view the cascading water from the dam, down the rocks and into the river. On a windy day the mist will cool you off. The sawying bridge to the island is very safe, even though... 更多
The drive takes you through wheat fields ,at this time they're golden and ready for harvest. You'll go down hill to the dam area and walk across a swinging bring ( very sturdy). The island had a park with picnic tables in the shade and ones under a pavilion. The waterfall is the largest in the area. There are information... 更多
If you're a dry lander, you might be impressed by the thin veil of water that elegantly spills over the heavy concrete dam. Hydropower is important, so I won't complain about the dam. But if you are fan of waterfalls, this one will underwhelm. However, if you have read any Lewis and Clark, you will be awestruck by the steep... 更多
