What a fun and educational place! My husband and I read about this historic hatchery online during a recent trip to the northern Black Hills and decided to visit. We learned a lot about early fish hatchery days and had a blast feeding the fish. Buy a bag of fish food at the gift shop and watch the fish and ducks make a mad dash to get their fill. This historic hatchery includes great interpretive displays, fun underwater viewing areas, a restored fish rail car, the historic Booth home (the first hatchery manager's home) and a museum. The gift shop has a broad array of items for young and old; proceeds go toward hatchery upkeep and improvement. The hatchery is located adjacent to the beautiful Spearfish city park and is a wonderful asset to city residents and visitors alike. You'll enjoy spending an hour or more at this unique and historic site.
