“Family friendly fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We had a lot of fun exploring the hatchery and feeding the fish. While it's mostly something you do on your own, the staff we met were super friendly. There are great hiking trails starting right from the hatchery as well, perfect place to spend a day!

“A nice way to spend an hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Only three miles from the campgrounds around the Camp Sherman area, the fish hatchery provides some afternoon entertainment and change of scenery from the campsites. Adults could easily bike along the main road to get there, although it is a bit hilly and there is no shoulder so it may not be a good ride for kids. The hatchery is a giant outdoor area with tons of fish viewing. There are picnic tables, running water, and flushing toilets. For a quarter you can by some fish food to throw in the pond, although the serving is meager so bring plenty of change. The hatchery alone is probably not a spectacular attraction but if you are in the area, it is definitely worth checking out.

“Big Hatchery”

Hmm if you are into hatcheries.....if not then perhaps another destination would be better. We hiked to the hatchery so it was nice to have a destination.

“Fish a Plenty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great place to see how the rivers get stocked with fish.
We can't wait to bring the grand kids. Be sure and bring some quarters for the fish food machines. They are fun.

“A fishy place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a great family spot. Walk among the outdoor fish ponds and see the fingerlings getting ready for release. Bring plenty of quarters so that the kids can get fish food to throw into the ponds and see the fish feeding.
