“fun with the boys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is a fun little family see. the guide was welcoming and knowledgeable, and getting to see the fish hatchery was a real treat. feeding the fish is the best part for any kid - seeing the fish jump & the differences between the trout breeds makes for great conversation with the little ones. take 30 minutes, it's worth the drive over.

“Impressive and fun to feed the fish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

We spent some time here recently and it was an enjoyable experience. A short informative video about the hatchery is worth a watch and it was quite the sight to feed those hungry trout! I'd recommend it if you have an extra 30mins in the area.

“Family fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013 via mobile

Greeted at door by helpful staff. We watched video about the hatchery and they gave us food for the fish. Kids had a ball walking around feeding them. The facility is not much to look at but it is free family fun, can't beat that
