Bring a picnic lunch and stay to enjoy the pools of fish, walks along the creek and ponds and the playground. The kids really enjoyed the fish bridge which is part of the playground set.

Feed the trout, be amazed at the number of them in the ponds, and check out the BIG ones. This is a small, local hatchery that does a great job helping supplement some of the best stream fishing in NYS. It makes a nice trip for young kids-picnic tables and a playground, and you can walk through the hatchery itself... More

Just average. I wouldn't go out of my way to see the place. Half of the tanks inside were empty. There were no employees around to answer your questions or give you an idea of what they do there. Nice little pond for the kids to fish in.

What a wonderful and inexpensive family outing. Buy a bag of fish food and feed the brook, brown, and rainbow trout. What a beautiful parklike setting. Pack a lunch or use one of their bbq pits and let the kids enjoy the playground.

Hatched on site and raised in ponds where you can feed them, this is an incredible chance to get up close to beautiful trout. You can purchase a bag of fish pellets in the office for $1 or $2 to feed the fish. It's well worth it since there is no admission. One building in the back is where the... More
