Beautiful spot to stop and stretch your legs- and check out the sturgeon! Our kiddos loved it- and it was a nice little wander to stretch and get some fresh air! The gift shop has snacks and coffee, and cute trinkets!

There is a large area including the south side of the dam, navigational locks, fish farm, gift shop, picnic area, and sturgeon ponds. Lots of parking and easy handicap access. Friendly employees always willing to help. Many photos and fish viewing windows.

This is a great stop if you are looking to get out and stretch your legs. There’s so much to see and do including the dam, the sturgeon center and the hatchery. Even on a cold and rainy day, the facility is still beautiful.

This was the cutest fish hatchery I have ever seen! The coffee shop was amazing, the gift shop was incredible! The landscaping was absolutely beautiful- and it’s a hatchery! Working here seems like a dream retirement job!
