The Dalles Dam

A project of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Search The Dalles Oregon

Located 192 miles upstream from the mouth of the Columbia River, this enormous dam is nearly half a mile long. Although power production now greatly overshadows all other purposes, an important reason for constructing The Dalles Dam was to provide for safe navigation through the turbulent reaches of the Columbia River.

Be sure to ride the The Dalles Dam Tour Train and visit the The Dalles Dam Visitor Center.
