  • The Visitor Center and Fish Hatchery are located at the park entrance and are open to visitors year round. Here, exhibits tell the story of Warm Springs Dam, explain the natural and early history of Dry Creek Valley, and offer a variety of audio-visual and ranger-led programs. Displays in the visitor center focus on the culture of the Pomo tribe of native Americans - the original inhabitants of the Dry Creek Valley - and their way of life, with partular emphasis on their excellent basket making skills. Call (707) 431-4533 for additional information. The Congressman Don Clausen Fish Hatchery is located behind the Visitor Center. Visitors can observe the operation of the hatchery and see displays which describe the life cycle of the coho salmon, steelhead and chinook. The hatchery was built to replace and enhance salmon and steelhead spawning grounds. It is a Corps of Engineers hatchery operated by the California Department of Fish and Game. Tours for large groups may be arranged by calling (707) 431-4533.
    • Marina boat rental

      RUDE staff, they do NOT care about the customers at all, all they care is charge you. There is a guy by the name of Jose and a person by the name of Shey both are super rude .... Sad thing to see how...

    • Steelhead run

      Watching the fish climb the ladder was very moving. Don't miss a little detour to the fish ladders when the steelhead are running.

    • Great views and local history!

      This mountain range lake area is great for a relaxing stop or picnic. There is a museum with lots of local history and a guide on hand to answer questions and give helpful information of the region.
