4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We stopped of here on the way home from a great long weekend at christopher creek lodge. The teenagers actually got a Kick out of it! Mostly by telling the undersized trout in the runs that we
would see them in summer....on the grill!

“Always love visiting with the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Fun for the kids to feed the fish and see the different sizes as they grow. Bring quarters for the food machines.

“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

If you've never seen a hatchery before this is nicely done. They sell food pellets so you can feed the hatchlings and there is a display inside the building.

“A fun and interesting place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

worth the stop while in the area. An informative museum on the property. A nice drive. We even caught 2 trout down the road at a pretty area for picnicing - hint, take the path down to the creek.

“Bring a few quarters- feed the fish.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My boys loved feeding the fish. This will take you about 20 minutes to see the whole place, so don't plan your day around this. Check out the surrounding creek though...we had a picnic and it was great!
