Williams Dam

The Williams Dam, officially opened in 1913, was once a hydroelectric dam that provided homes and stone industries with electricity until the 1950s. While it no longer provides power to the locals, the White River still falls over the 17ft high walls. Now, you will find a boat launch, fishing areas, picnic areas and the remnants of what used to be a very popular campground. You may even catch a glimpse at endangered species like the Indiana Bat, Fresh-Water Mussels and the American Bald Eagle.

If you find yourself in the small town of Williams, Indiana, find a moment to fish at the pier that sits by the dam, take a stroll along the beautiful Milwaukee Trail or enjoy the view of the historic Williams Covered Bridge.
