Description:

The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey...

The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey through Georgia's watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler - where to go, what to use and when.

We have over 170,000 gallons of aquatic exhibits that feature fish from the mountains, piedmont, coastal plain and swamp habitats of Georgia. We also have freshwater and saltwater fishing simulators, hunting simulators and a pond where you can try out your fishing skills.

We are a Georgia Department of Natural Resources Facility.

Open hours are Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm.

Tuesday - Thursday we do field trips or group tours. These need to be scheduled in advance.

Great place to spend the afternoon. The way they have the viewing tanks set up is good for young and old. The price is extremely reasonable $4 for seniors. Staff are friendly and helpful. The indoor simulated fishing experiences are lots of fun. Then you can really go fishing in pond out back. The rods are all ready for casting... More

Part aquarium, part museum, part hands-on and totally worth a visit. You see the signs on the interstate and think it must be some boring education center! Wrong! It's very cool and modern and you'll like it, I promise. For just about $4 a person it's a good deal. They have tanks with all types of fish, turtles and alligators... More

First off, if you complain about anything, there is something wrong with you. The entrance fee is ONLY $5 for anyone over 12. There are no places that can beat that price. ALL staff members were friendly! FUN FOR ALL! If I was in the area again, I would go back. Parking is good, Bathrooms are clean.

We went as a small group with our homeschool group. The cost is low for what you get, awesome for larger families like ours. We first went to the simulators. You can fish a lake or the ocean. My kids had fun and when we walked by later an elderly couple were giving it a try. The smiles on their... More

I live nearby but made my first trip with my 3 year old grandson today. This is just a wonderful venue. It has great interactive fishing and hunting simulators. Great fish tanks and a nice fishing pond with rods and bait and plenty of biting fish. Upon catching his first fish grandson got a certificate. Easy to get to, plenty... More

After seeing pictures of a family member visiting this place, I knew we had to take my nephews here. We loved it! Plenty of things to do, lots of education, relaxed atmosphere, and a great place to take the kids! Check it out!

Our 4th grade classes came here on a field trip. We helped clean out their pond as part of our school's stem project, touched a baby alligator & learned more about Wood Ducks. We also learned a lot about fish found in Georgia. This is a great place for a field trip!

We have seen the signs for Go Fish Georgia as we passed on I 75 for several years. This weekend we were looking for places to take our 6 year old grandson in the area. This was a great choice. He gad a ball and learned some things as well. The fishing and shooting simulators were a big hit as... More

This place is great! Young and old alike enjoy everything here. You get to view all types of fish found in this area and you also get to use a virtual device that makes it seem like you are actually fishing. Outside there is a pond where you can fish and everybody catches a fish. Its great!
