The kids really liked the big fish. There is a Nature Center on site that was really done up right. Staff was very helpful. Just down... More

It is awesome to get to see and feed all of the fish. They have a little informational area to go through and then you can go feed the fish. Make sure you bring quarters with you to get fish food.

This is a wonderful and educational place to take the kids as well as adults. The video they show of how they continue to raise the trout is very, very interesting. The folks are very helpful and informative. Walking around and feeding the trout is a fun activity for all.

This place was fun to walk around, and it was free so that's a plus. My 4 year old loved feeding the fish! Take lots of quarters for fish food!

I took my 87 year old mother-in-law to the fish hatchery. She had never been to one so I figured it must be on her bucket list. It was a beautiful sunny spring day with a slight breeze. The hatchery was not crowded so we strolled along unhurried. We also saw the free movie which was very good. You are... More
