Flaming Gorge Dam Visitor Center
Adress: Dutch John, Utah
Flaming Gorge Reservoir was created in 1962 with the completion of the Flaming Gorge Dam on the Green River by the Bureau of Reclamation. At 502 feet tall, the dam is part of the Colorado River Storage Project, and provides water storage, hydroelectricity, and recreation. There are three generating units in the Flaming Gorge Power Plant, which produce enough energy annually to serve about 50,000 households.
