There are many things to do at Johnstown Flood National Memorial!

We recommend that you begin your visit at the Lake View Visitor Center. There you can view the exhibits and the award winning film. Follow up with a stroll around the pathways outside of the Visitor Center where wayside exhibit panels use text and pictures to help you envision the area as it was in 1889. You may also wish to visit the remains of the dam, which are a short drive from the Visitor Center.

Allow one to two hours for your visit. The park film lasts 35 minutes. In the summer, ranger programs take visitors through down into, and through the breach in the South Fork Dam.

Nearby, in the community of Saint Michael, remain some of the original buildings of the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club as well as the Club House. It is worth the drive through the historic area, which is marked by brown National Park Service signs. A map is also available in the park brochure, available at the Visitor Center.
