  • We loved just sitting and watching the birds, fish, seals, and otters. We were not fortunate enough to see a bear, but it was such amazing!

  • Very cool to be able to see salmon in the water. But even cooler to see the sea lions and other wildlife having a buffet to eat!
  • Amazing place when salmon are running. I visited in late August and it was very impressive. River absolutely packed with fish, and a field full of dead ones. Gives a taste of scale of the salmon industry. There's a small self guided tour outside the hatchery. All free too.
