Towering 502 feet above the Green River. and completed in 1964, the Flaming Gorge Dam was built to provide water storage and hydroelectric power. The Dam is managed by the US Bureau of Reclamation and is the major hydroelectric dam along the Green River system.

The visitor center here is a great place to start any tour of Flaming Gorge Country. A large 3D model, on-going films and interpretive displays give one a good overview of the myriad of recreational opportunities that await. Perched at the edge of the dam and along the water, an easy stroll rewards visitors with great scenic views. Free guided tours, conducted daily in season (April 15th through October 15th, 9am-5pm), give one a fascinating look deep inside the dam. On the north side of the parking lot, visitors can stroll down to the water along the easy Dam Point Trail, where there is a picnic area and fishing opportunities.
