  • It was easy to find. We loved the fish hatchery, you can buy fish food there. It's .25 cents for a handful. Super cute. Playground is on the opposite side of the hatchery. It was on a beautiful road. We will definitely be going back!
  • This park is a Monroe County gem. Lots of great trails for hiking and cross country skiing. A beautiful creek, and a very interesting fish hatchery to visit.
  • I love powder mills park. Great hatchery, you get to pass the mushroom house, and it’s pretty quiet so it’s a good place to just walk around.
  • Has a trout fish hatchery kids will love. Vending machine of fish food pellets. Bring your quarters! Well kept park with hiking. Picnic tables.
  • Meticulously maintained grounds. Absolutely fantastic fishing !!! Their stocking program over the past 10years has become AMAZING !!! The hatchery is open to the public to see how they raise these gorgeous brown trout. Miles of bike trails. Cabins and picnic areas to reserve for private parties. Great sleding hills, they even have a small ski slope to enjoy. Very fun place for the entire family.
