Limited hours and days depending on the time off year. Summer is wed-sat noon-6 for example and currently, they are only open to public Memorial day through Labor Day. So, do yourself a favor and check to ensure they are open before you head out. This is a small site and self guided tour. However, they will provide tackle and... More

Took a family with 4 little children and my family with a 6 month old. EVERYONE had a good time. Even the 6 month old like watching the fish splash around. Great family time.

A nice find. Historic spot! Worth the cost to feed the fish. Bring something to wash your hands with tho, the fish food is STINKY!!! Good for all ages.

We packed up four kids and four adults to go to the fish hatchery and we were bummed to drive there only to find it closed! They don't open until noon! We arrived at 11 am. Kids were really disappointed.

If you want to see fish up close this is the place to be. I'm not sure teens would enjoy if but younger children (as shown in the photo) would really have a good time.

The kids will love seeing so many fish in one place. They can fish and get help catching their dinner. A little pricey on the fish but a good experience.

I've been here before, and wanted to show my nephews on our way upnorth. Even though they are a little older now, and it does seem to be fun for the toddlers and kids. There are a few cement "lakes" that hold the fish, and you can purchase baggies of fish food, and you toss it in, and they go... More

We did not know what this pace was and stopped. We were glad we did. If you want to learn about fish spawning, their different stages of life, and see a well maintained and clean facility- this is the place. it is great for the whole family of all ages from very young to grand dad!

Enjoyed feeding the fish, the toddler loved it. Be warned, though - it's pretty basic and you'll be right out in the blazing hot sun the whole time.
