Love taking our young boys here. There are picnic tables and a pavilion for having lunch. Fish food is cheap and plentiful. Lots of fish. Would be 5 stars but bathrooms could use better maintenance.

Stopped here after a long nite at work and discovered it is a great place to unwind and chill. Very informative self-guided tour. Nice find.

It's not changed in 40+ years. Nice place to go. Very park-like setting, a lot of fish to see, kids throwing in fish food, families picnicking. Yet so close to the urban area. Lil Lehigh Fish Hatchery is a delightful place to spend an hour so close to home yet you feel like you are in the woods.

Wonderful spot to visit. Fish to feed who are very excited to be fed, ducks to see and space to run around. There is always shade too.

Spend the afternoon in a beautiful park like setting enjoying nature and learning about trout! This is excellent for kids because they can play in the grass and feed the fish which is exciting!

We brought the kiddos while waiting for an event in the area. We purchased a couple of large bags of food at $2 a piece that was the only expense! Definitely worth the trip!

The fish hatchery has been around for decades. I went when I was a kid, and took my kids. We took our grandchildren and they loved it. Not much to do. You just walk around and look at the big tanks in the ground containing the different sized trout. The fun begins when you feed the trout the food you... More

Who doesn't enjoy feeding animals, or watching the frenzy of fish going for the food pellets? Even the ducks that hang out here like the fish food. Seeing the different sizes and varieties of trout in the pools is pretty cool. The program has a long tradition in the area, and my husband fondly remembers opening day of trout fishing... More
