This center is across the bridge just on the right going west on Hwy 89 from Page. About 3 miles away from the town center, the views along the visitor center area are good. Tours of the dam inner workings and to see the turbine power generators are offered every hour for a fee of $5. I did not have time, otherwise the tour would be informative. You need a reservation at most times since only 20 people are allowed at once time. The center has a good topo map of the area the lake covers, and also a good exhibit of the evolution of the terrain that one time was a sea bed. The Colorado Plateau rose up over time and created this area into a high desert region.
