Anyox Dam

On our Ghost Towns Tour one of the highlights is visiting the Anyox Dam.  What is more amazing is that it is non the middle of nowhere.  We drive a few km’s up a dirt road from the townsite of Anyox and out of nowhere appears this massive structure. By attending this tour you would be one of the lucky few to visit the engineering marvel from the 1920’s.  We get up close and even walk inside the dam to see the inner workings.

In the early 1920s concrete pioneer and dam engineer John Eastwood designed a hydroelectric dam that stood, at 156 feet (48 m), as the tallest dam in Canada for many years.
