Seeing the salmon from under the water is always neat. So is seeing them jumping up the ladder as you stand above the rising water on metal grates. Good for family's with kids.

A wonderful educational site for a family visit. Showing how salmon reproduce and are aided in going upstream past the huge waterfalls. Neat demonstrations. Also a truly unique gift shop. A very scenic place to visit.

The staff were wonderful. My kids loved watching the falls and the fish. The staff allowed them under the rail as they were too small to see. I really recommend a visit!
