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

It's fun for all to walk around the hatchery. Food is available to feed the fish. Young children enjoy watching the fish scramble around for food that gets thrown in for them. A great place to wander around summer, fall, and spring.

The Allentown Fish hatchery was easy to find and had plenty of parking. The grounds are very pretty. Nice place to walk around for 10 minutes or 30 minutes or longer. Food is sold in different size bags. It was a lot of fun to see all the different types of trout and to watch them come for the food.... More

The Allentown fish hatchery has been here as long as I have lived in the valley. Over the last 20 years I have spent afternoons especially in summer visiting the fish hatchery and enjoying all the different pools of growing fish. It is fun to feed them and to experience walking around seeing their growth. It sounds kind of strange... More

This place is a local favorite! I took my kids there and whenever we have young visitors we go! The kids get a kick out of the huge fish and how they flip around and splash tryng to get the pellets.

We visited the Allentown Fish Hatchery a long time ago with my brother, his wife and his six children. Everyone had a lot of fun there. Who thought fish could be fun?

I have visited the Fish Hatchery multiple times with my grandkids. They always enjoyed it. I'd say it's for the ten and under crowd.
