This is a great place to take the kids or just walk around with a friend of loved one. It's not very big but you can spend hours sitting along side the fish tanks just watching them swim around. Best on a nice day. Kids can feed the fish for a cost and the little store is interesting. Not a... More

As a lifetime fisherman it is a real treat to see where the trout that are stocked in Pennsylvania streams are bred and raised. You can even buy some fish food and feed them which is quite fun.

What a pleasant surprise! I was in town with my 4 year, looking for a way to kill some time, and decided to stop by to feed the fish. The Hatchery is beautiful, the bags of food and large and CHEAP, and the man selling the food in the white building gave me some really interesting history on the location.... More

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.

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!
