There's a picnic area overlooking Douglas dam that offers a pretty good view. No hiking required and no walking for that matter. You could take photos right from the car if you wanted to.

At the top of the hill is an observation deck with an even better view.

Douglas Dam was built in the early 1940s. I like this photo of those guys who are probably 80 some-odd years old now working with their old equipment. I wasn’t around back then so I borrowed this Wikipedia photo. I wonder how deep the hole is that they’re trying to pump out.

A lot of people like to fish in Douglas lake. Not being a fisher I couldn’t tell you whether it’s good fishing or not.

But I can tell you Douglas lake is a real nice place.
