For the best viewing below the dam, take exit 87 in The Dalles and travel north on Hwy 197 for a short distance. Turn right (east) on Bret Clodfelter Way and travel about a mile to the visitor center at Seuffert Park. View the area below the dam from this park. Be mindful that the state line takes a weird jag at this this location so if you are a state lister, make sure you know where the state line is. Check the map above to see the line.Directions
Habitat and Birds
Birds congregate at the dam and feed on the churned up flotsom that comes through the turbines. Gulls, loons, grebes, and ducks are common here.
