Just east of Sutton you will find the Sutton Dam, which impounds Sutton Lake. The Dam, built and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is very interesting to see. Beside and above the dam is a parking area with a couple of benches which provide a good spot for viewing the dam, and the lake behind it. Particularly interesting is the rushing water of the Elk River which spills from beneath the dam. The lake is 125 feet deep at the dam.
