Interesting operation but after a quick look around at the tanks we were bored with it. They do have a nice visitor center and very pretty grounds with shade.

If you're a fishing family this is an interesting place to stop. The walk around the fish hatchery is lovely and the little museum tells a lot about the history of the hatchery and the area. Page Springs Road is a lovely drive as well.

I've never been to a hatchery, so found the visit interesting. It was fun seeing the fish at various sizes. There is a pond nearby with a few variety of ducks. There is a walking trail, but we didn't check it out.

Hadn’t planned to visit, but stopped by out of curiosity. It’s a beautiful, peaceful spot. The self-guided tour was short but interesting.

The hatchery is self guided. There's a small Visitors Center with a bit of background information. You then walk a bit to a building of fish runs where there are small trout. A bit further on, there's another public run with 7-9" trout. That's it....More
