We took our grandkids to see the hatchery. They loved going from tank to tank and feeding the fish. There are always quite a few people fishing so we brought a picnic lunch and just watched them from the banks.

I know a golf cart is used by the campground host. You can probably call the ranger station in roaring river to find out.
