Have visited at least once a year for 30 years. Always impressed and enjoyable to watch children's reactions.

I have visited the Fish Hatchery multiple times with my grandkids. They always enjoyed it. I'd say it's for the ten and under crowd.

it was very clean and nice. We pack a lunch and sit at the picnic tables they have to eat and then feed the fish. We come here a couple times a year. Total wheel chair accessible!

I took my granddaughters there and they enjoyed seeing all the fish. It is free of charge and free parking. There is a large board that displays all the different kinds of fish that is in the hatchery. We had a good time pointing out the various types we saw from the board. We spent about 90 minutes leisurely walking... More

Love bringing the kids to feed the fish and just walk around, no cost to enter and the fish food is inexpensive. Great summer activity for kids and adults and all those on a budget.

This experience is a wonderful for families with children of all ages. There are walking paths and so many fish. You can feed the fish if you bring food, or they have feeders that you can purchase some kibble for the fish. A quick experience unless you take advantage of the walking/hiking trails. Beautiful scenery.

We have been here a few times taking our grandkids and by ourselves. You can get to understand the hard work and dedication it takes to stock our streams in PA. It is an interesting and fun place for the kids our grandkids enjoyed feeding the fish.

This was a nice little stop in the countryside where you can see many retaining ponds filled with trout of 4-5 different species just hanging out. The sizes of the fish range from about the size of an adult's hand to a small dog. You can buy fish food and feed the trout, if you like.
