“Oden State Fish Hatchery Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Very nice walk though old train car with lots of history. LOve the walking trails between ponds. The kids really like to feed the fish ( there are several feed stations along the way 10 cents for a had full of grains) The building with all the tanks is really neat too. I take this little tour ever few years and always enjoy it.

“Kids love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a very simple place to visit. The kids are able to experience some education in the nuseum, but they are also able to see so many fish that they will be amazed. A nice little place to stop and feed the fish.

“Cool experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

While visiting the area, we decided to take the kids to see the Oden Fish Hatchery. The kids really got a kick out of visiting the little museum located in train cars on the property, and they really enjoyed being able to run around and see all the different stages of the hatchery. The best part of the experience was feeding the fish out in a couple of large holding ponds. No matter how much food they were fed, the fish were very active, jumping out of the water for the pellets. If you are in the area and have some extra time, check this place out.

“Great place to stop with kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is a great place to eat lunch, take a walk or wander with children. It is a beautifully, tastefully restored stream and trail system with a feeding pond and glass viewing chamber. Super cool for the outdoorsy and those who love trout ;-)
