Lookout Point Dam is at river mile 21.3 on the Middle Fork Willamette River, about 22 miles southeast of Eugene, Ore.
Lookout Point Dam is an earth and gravel-filled dam with concrete gated spillways. It was completed in 1954 at a cost of $88.2 million. Since then, it has helped prevent more than $5.3 billion in potential flood damages. Lookout Point Dam has three hydropower generating units capable of producing 50 megawatts each.
In coordination with Hills Creek and Fall Creek dams, the three dams work together for the purposes of flood risk management, water quality improvement, irrigation, fish and wildlife habitat and recreation.
