  • If you love the outdoors than this place is a must-visit for you. Takes about 15-20 minutes from highway 20 to drive to; this makes it all the more worth it though.

  • Amazing, haven't been in many many years. Come to see the new ponds they added... Still great info, still huge fish. Brings back so many memories. Very nice bathrooms on site, informational kiosks everywhere.
  • Great place for family members of all ages. Paths are wide and maintained. Easy for wheel chairs and strollers.
  • It's pretty cool to see the stages of fish life as the people here work to repopulate rivers with trout. Bring a couple quarters to get some fish food and watch them splash.
  • A great place to take the family. It fun to feed the fish here so bring quarter for the fish food machines and a paper cup to hold it.
