Shasta Dam

There is a free guided tour of the dam and power plant, which runs 7 days a week. Tours include an elevator ride down inside the dam, where guides will discuss the history, purpose and construction of this huge project. After the short walk through the dam, the tour heads over to the powerhouse for a chance to view the state’s largest hydroelectric generating station. The visitor’s center provides a great view of the dam, Shasta Lake and nesting ospreys. Find out more – http://www.usbr.gov/mp/ncao/shasta/
