Mount Morris Dam Tours

Mount Morris Dam and Recreation Area

The US Army Corps of Engineers built the Mount Morris Dam in the late 1940s to reduce flooding on the lower Genesee River. Today, the dam continues to provide flood protection along 67 miles of the Genesee River Valley from the village of Mount Morris to downtown Rochester where the river enters Lake Ontario. 

Top of the Dam Guided Walks are offered daily spring through fall. Still an active, working dam, a limited number of visitors can participate in a Top of the Dam Guided Walk to learn more about this engineering marvel. This guided walk is ideal for active visitors with an interest in engineering and the Genesee River Valley. 

Pre-arrival reservations are strongly recommended and can be booked up to 7 days in advance and up to 8am ET on the morning of the Guided Walk.
