We took our grandkids to see the hatchery. They loved going from tank to tank and feeding the fish. There are always quite a few people fishing so we brought a picnic lunch and just watched them from the banks.

We love to camp here. It is a beautiful area. Wish the swimming pool had discounts for campers. Park check in was not very friendly or helpful but others working there were.

Beautiful and entertaining for the whole family. Hike the trails, swim in the pool or River, fish for rainbow trout, visit the conservation sites to see the local birds and reptiles, or relax and let it all soak in. Something for everyone.

This place has a fish hatchery, fishing, camping and trails to walk. The hatchery is under renovations but you can still walk around and explore this wonderful park

There are a few areas near the campground where people wade and swim. But the water is VERY cold.
