This is an unassuming place and not to be the destination of a long trip; but, if you're in the area stop in with the kids. They, and you , will enjoy it.

It's not that kind of fish hatchery. It's just for looking. It's where they raise fish to stock rivers and creeks.

The parking lot close to the fish is fine for cars but I would not bring a bus in there, not enough turning radius. I'd allow 45 mins there to see the fish and walk around a little bit.
