Very nice fish hatchery. Pleasant surroundings with signage to explain things. Fish food available and the kids were loving it. Very quiet setting.

We spent an hour or so wandering around the hatchery and it was mildly interesting. There are no tours but there are signs that explain things well. There are machines that dispense fish food for a quarter for the kids of all ages who want to feed the fish.

Exciting to go to the hatchery. The kids love this place. We all enjoy feeding the fish and gawking at the "big ones".

Great area to stop as you travel up/down the mountain. Beautiful scenery, interesting to see the different sizes/types of fish. Perfect place to take a rest from driving or camping in the area.

There are trails along the river to hike. You can get a handful of fish food and feed the larger fish. It was fun because they go wild when you throw even one piece of food in. They were jumping and splashing and it was fun to watch (even for teenage kids)

You can also go for a walk around the area if you are so inclined. We brought our own food and just had a mini picnic while the... More

Parklike surroundings with peace and quiet! Plenty of fish growing there and fun to see. A creek in nearby.

We had a lot of fun exploring the hatchery and feeding the fish. While it's mostly something you do on your own, the staff we met were super friendly. There are great hiking trails starting right from the hatchery as well, perfect place to spend a day!

Only three miles from the campgrounds around the Camp Sherman area, the fish hatchery provides some afternoon entertainment and change of scenery from the campsites. Adults could easily bike along the main road to get there, although it is a bit hilly and there is no shoulder so it may not be a good ride for kids. The hatchery is... More

Hmm if you are into hatcheries.....if not then perhaps another destination would be better. We hiked to the hatchery so it was nice to have a destination.
