Hells Canyon Dam


Cross Oxbow Dam and take the winding road along the river into the heart of the canyon to the visitor center at the Hells Canyon Dam, where exhibits explain canyon history and the geology of the continent's deepest canyon. Brownlee, Oxbow and Hells Canyon Dams provide recreation, produce renewable energy and regulate the flow of water to reduce flooding down river. Below HC Dam, 31 miles of river are designated Wild & Scenic and surounded by a Wilderness Area.
