Thomson Dam Overlook

The Thomson Dam is the primary dam of the Thomson Project which is composed of more than a dozen dams and control structures. The project supplies enough power for all of the homes in Duluth, Minnesota.

The dam and tannin tinted waterfalls can be viewed from the parking lot. An interpretive sign has information about the dam, hydro plant, and the surrounding area.

The parking lot is surfaced with rough gravel making pushing a bit difficult.

The parking lot is large enough for any RV. Dam  46.66532, -92.40426


  1. A beautiful waterfall, but I wouldn't want to fall in that water -- I think a person could be swept away!

    1. I think we were lucky to see it with that much water going over the falls - very pretty,
