Established in 1897, this is one of over 75 hatcheries in the
national system administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The hatchery rears four strains of rainbow fish and supports projects to enhance federal fish and wildlife trust species and their habitats in the Southern Appalachian Ecosystem, in which this hatchery is located.
Come by the Visitor Center, then take a Hatchery tour. Take advantage of the wildlife viewing area, and set up lunch at the picnic pavilion.
