I really liked this little hatchery. If you buy fish food, you can feed the fish. I found it fun. My boys seemed to like it too. When you throw the food in, the fish go wild. It's pretty entertaining.

Nice hour of entertainment for the little one. A little pricey but worth it to see my granddaughter so happy & excited to feed the fish. Went on an overcast day, which worked out great, you could see the fish much better.

We frequent the fish hatchery - with a 6, 5, and 1.5 year old. They love feeding the fish. The fish splash and jump and fight for the food right after you throw it. Sure to bring out some giggles of delight! Sometime we just...More

We tried fishing the Au Sable River the day before our visit and came home empty handed. So, when we had the opportunity to fish and take home a few trout without even cleaning them it was a no brainer. Educational and fun!

There's not much in the area to do, but this is worth the stop on the way up north. We got a family season pass for $20 which was good until Labor Day (we bought it in late August so it was good for about...More

Have been here more than a few times and children to grandparents enjoyed visiting. Make sure to buy the fish food and watch the fish jump for it.

I brought my husband here during our visit to the Grayling area, and he loved it. For $1 you get a big bag of fish food pellets to throw into the raceways and watch the trout fight over. The littler fish swarm the food and...More

No. They have everything there you need. They will even clean them for you. There is usually a ton of fish and it is very easy to catch them. Kids have a blast.
