WE rode bikes here from Camp Sherman Store. A good 5 miles up and then 5 miles back. NOt hard but some hills. Hatchery was very interesting and kids can feed the fish. The falls were the coolest thing: bright blue waters ! great place for a picnic, and nice to see the history of it all...

This hatchery is in such a beautiful setting. They have a huge pond area and fish pellet food is available......It is wonderful just to walk the grounds and then go down to visit the Metolius River!!!!

Feed the fish in the tanks and the nearby holding lake. Clean, tidy, quiet and beautiful. Very fun for the little ones too.

Amazing water views right at the bridge as you enter. Make sure to go on bridge and just be amazed. No charge for hatchery. Easy walk around small hatching lake, 1/2 mile. Or just go to the main feeding area. Good to picnic here. Nice to ride your bike hear from general store or a camp site.

We took a hike along the Metolius and ended up here at the fish hatchery. What a little slice of heaven. This place is peaceful and beautiful. A great place to take the kids. Lots of fish to feed In the pond and geese galore. It is also a great destination for a picnic lunch.

I live in Bend this is one of my favorite day trips to make. Wizard Falls has a fish hatchery and a wonderful hiking trail and they are also dog friendly!

Took my grand daughter there on a hot spring day. She is 8 and loved it. The picnic area is beautiful and shady. She loved seeing the different stages of the fish and enjoyed feeding them.

Our main objective was to go hiking on Metolius River, and the trailheads happen to start just outside the fish hatchery. Since we were already there, we decided to check it out. It is a great place for families - informational signs posted everywhere about the types of fish they raise there, along with the ecological concerns about stocking fish,... More
