Pathfinder Spillway

LOOKING Closer

Completed in 1909 as part of the North Platte Project, Pathfinder Dam was one of the first large dams created under the 1902 Reclamation Act. It was constructed to irrigate lands in Wyoming. Our camera is located above the dam’s spillway, which can be seen overflowing periodically.
