  • We had so much fun feeding the fish. It was inexpensive and very great for the kids. Wonderful way to enjoy an afternoon. Put in a quarter and you get fish food. Not a bad deal at all!
  • 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.
  • The fish hatchery is pretty cool. They have fish up to 4yrs old. At the time we went went they had brown trout.
  • Beautiful place to walk in the woods. The fish they keep in the outside cement tanks are fun to watch and feed. Kids would love this place.
  • Great place to xc ski, fish, and hike. My three year old loves the fish hatchery and mushroom house.
