Dover Dam

This weekend is named for, and pretty much celebrates our closest neighbor, the Dover Dam. The Army Corps of Engineers, which operates the flood control dam on the Tuscarawas River, opens it and conducts tours each year on the Saturday of Dover Dam Weekend. Tours by groups at the camp for the weekend or for the day, must be scheduled by Friday evening through the Camp Staff and will begin at the Tuscazoar side of the dam at scheduled times, though tours may be joined from the near end of the dam, which features a parking lot just off State Rt.800. The far side of the dam as seen in this photo, is the side abutting Camp Tuscazoar and can only be accessed by a nice long hike along what once was a railroad bed. The hilltop seen here rising well above the dam is Buzzard's Roost. It provides a beautiful view of the valley and river, and serves as a great primitive spot to camp and a challenging cliff face to climb.
