We took our 3 boys and they love it! Best of all it's basically free except for the fish food which is 0.25 cents. Make sure you bring some small cups or bags or you will end up holding the food in your hand. I saw the some of the largest trout I've ever seen in my whole life. Very interesting and entertaining. Not to be missed.

Nice break from hustle and bustle. Bring a zip loc bag and lots of quarters for fish food. Your kids will love feeding the fish from the small frys to the huge "big as your arm" adults. Staff is great. Make sure you walk down to the long pond on the south end as the trout in there will come in the shallows and eat out of your hand! The area is amazing too for pics.

This was a great place for family fun. My 7 year old daughter and my 6 year old nephew LOVED it! It was fun learning about the production of rainbow trout. The staff was very friendly and informative. They actually had a 12 minute film about trout production that was very interesting. Feeding the fish was great! You can get fish food for a quater..you may want to bring several quarters as the fish literally fight for the pellets! Watching the water pour from the dam was great too! Defintely a must visit for a family with kids and like everyone else said it's free!
