The Kinzua Dam, in the Allegheny National Forest in Warren County, Pennsylvania, is one of the largest dams in the United States east of the Mississippi River.
The dam is located 6 miles (10 km) east of Warren, Pennsylvania along Route 59, within the 500,000-acre (2,000 km2) Allegheny National Forest.
A boat marina and beach are located within the dam boundaries. In
addition to providing flood control and power generation, the dam
created Pennsylvania's deepest lake, the Allegheny Reservoir, also known as Kinzua Lake.
Wade grew up in Warren Pennsylvania so we take a drive up there now and then. He loves the area and likes to show me the sites. I'm always thrilled to have something new to take pictures of.
