Located next to Table Rock Dam, over a million trout per year are produced in this fish hatchery, also a great family stop.
A popular attraction for nature lovers, this park and hatchery covers over 200 acres and includes a Conservation Center, four hiking trails, lake-side activities such as trout fishing, and more. Located next to Lake Taneycomo, the facilities offer tours that come highly recommended and will show visitors the trout production processes, including incubation, tank maintenance, raising and spawning ponds. Visitors can hand-feed the hungry fish and enjoy the outdoors in the meantime.
At the Conservation Center, any kind of information one could hope for is available. A quarter of a million people a year come here to enjoy the unique experiences and the beautiful park. Visit the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery. 250,000 people couldn't be wrong!
