Review of Clyde Dam

Clyde Dam
Ranked #4 of 10 things to do in Clyde
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 December 2017 via mobile

The view is quite good from here or the lookout road. Worth stopping for a look after a good rain when they need to do some spilling. Impressive sight then, otherwise a good explanation or hydroelectric power generation and a bit of history of the area.

A very substantial dam above Clyde, an excellant view obtained from the road going to Cromwell as well as the lake behind. The lake is great for water sports although the water can be cold,

Took drive out here based on information in travel brochure. Museum closed as volunteers only man place. Few historic buildings but certainly not like how brochure read. Had lunch at Oliver's bar menu. Bit expensive for what we got. Wouldn't waste time going here again. Scenery on way out and back stunning.

The dam has created an awesome lake, producing electricity for NZ, beautiful scenery, ideal for boating, great views.

There's a great view of Clyde township, Lake Dunstan, the Clutha river and Earnscleugh fruit growing area with a view of the Alexandra hills in the background. In the winter you are able to see the different sections of property exposed because there are no leaves on the trees but Spring shows off the Blossum and summer is filled with green foliage and Autumn beautiful rich reds and yellows
