“One fish, Two Fish ............”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

It was a nice day and we were looking for a low key activity for 4 adults - we figured, why not? If you are looking for something involved, this is not the place to go. You walk among various tanks with the tiniest of "fingerlings" to fish ready for the table. Youngsters will want to get the special "baby food" to toss to the fingerlings. Unfortunately, the day we were there one tank had several "floaters". There are no guides - just posted info but the price is right - Free. There is plenty of lawn for relaxing or a picnic. Best part of the experience - the momma duck and her 4 little ducklings roaming the grounds. Word to the wise - don't look for a "Fish Hatchery" or you will miss your turn - the sign reads "Trout Nursery"!

“fun for kids and adults”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Took my sister and her boyfriend here. The boyfriend is a big fan of fishing so he especially loved it. But we all enjoyed it. Wow, very impressive display of fish up close! Be sure to buy some of the fish food (use the dispenser that takes coins if it is after hours at the booth) and watch the feeding frenzy.
