  • This place is worthy of ten stars. Bring your picnic basket and bring the kids. So much to learn about the trout. Kids are naturally curious and this could be a great experience. Who knows, they could grow up to be the next great conservationist.
  • Awesome conservation effort. My little girls really enjoyed it. Pheasants where pleasant surprise very healthy happy looking birds.
  • Loved this. Kids loved this. Wish someone had been there to tell the kids about the fish.
  • had a picnic lunch by the playground with the family. the kids ran around for a while and played on the playground. then we fed the trout. the property is well maintained. it's a nice and different place to spend an afternoon
  • Great fishing program in the spring. They provide everything and actually teach you along the way. Nice big trout to catch!
