Short trip from I-85 at Georgia-South Carolina line to Walhalla into the mountains of SC. Great trip to take young children to see live trout and to be able to feed them.

They have large water tanks holding brown trout, brook trout and rainbow trout in various sizes all the way up to one tank holding fish over 5lbs each. Also just outside the hatchery are some hiking trails including the run... More

The kids will love feeding the fish in the hatchery. (Bring your quarters. The Rangers can't always make change.) There are beautiful hiking trails as well as beautiful scenery and lots of opportunities for the kids to run, climb and play in nature. I am not a fisherman but I am told there is good fishing here too!

What we found was some of the most beautiful trails, streams and of course the TROUT was cool too. We came in just a feeding time and those fish are too... More

I can not believe that know one has reviewed the Walhalla Fish Hatchery. A great day trip for anyone is the upstate of SC, or something to do during your stay at Oconee State Park. If you have never been to the mountains of Oconee, SC.. You are missing out. Trails and the river run through the Hatchery and of... More
