Site No.7: Calkins Dam (Lake Allegan Dam)
The Lake Allegan Dam and Spillway was and is the replacement dam for the dismantled Pine Creek Dam (Site # 3). This dam still provides electricity for the area, as well as flood control for the Kalamazoo River drainage basin, and recreational opportunities.
In the spring and fall, when the fish are spawning, this is a favorite spot for fishermen who come in large numbers to try their luck.
