  • Nice place to go to see how the govt responded to low trout and other first species populations. This is the nations second oldest with Neosho, Missouri's fish hatchery a few months older. I took the easy walk through the paths to see the holding ponds and some beautiful area. These holding ponds are big and have trails connection them. Big a picnic and enjoy with friends and family in the middle of these trails. Restrooms, tables, swings, and open area are all at this spot as well.
  • Wonderful place to see the fish and the views. Pretty hiking trail
  • Amazing story. This facility has stocked rivers and streams worldwide. I true hidden gem of American history.
  • Great location, it was just 4 miles off the main road, and it was one of the best views in that whole area. Our Daughter LOVED seeing the ponds full of fish, it was a GREAT time spent there. BRING QUARTERS! They have fish feeding vending machines, and it's worth spending a few bucks on getting some pellets.
  • I live in leadville and through out the years I have always came back to this place and absolutely loved it. I also like the hiking trails near here and I love bringing my nephews here
