“fishies of all kinds”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

A great way to see fish, some in small, some very large, but all fascinating to watch (even if they are in a man-made environment). This hatchery sits back in a grassy clearing of the Shawnee Forest, wide open and sunny -- a stark contrast to the dark, shady forest which surrounds it. The fish are healthy. Where else can you see huge catfish living in large milk cans in the water? Fish of all kinds are raised here and eventually find homes in one of many lakes in the area. At least until they're caught and eaten. That's why hatcheries are necessary, huh?

“Near Giant City Park Lodge”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Very cool, take tour, call for hours. You could spend a full day in this area with Giant City Park Lodge and trails near by. Kids would love the Hatchery.

“Great Education for kids”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Stopped in this with kids and they enjoyed looking into the tanks of small catfish and we also got a fine tour from one of the employees. Look at the record channel cat 45 pounds--- Wow
