Built in 1909, the Bonneville Fish Hatchery located along the Columbia River Gorge is great place for family fun. A short drive to the hatchery can fill up an entire hot summers day with nature, fun and family bonding. Read about one families take from their trip to the Bonneville Fish Hatchery below.

This is a large fish hatchery that raises chinook salmon, but they have pools with large rainbow trout and really big white sturgeon where you can get a real close look at these large fish.
The Bonneville Hatchery is a great place to visit while you are in the Columbia River Gorge. There is lots to see and the admission and parking are free. It was a great place to wind up our little vacation in the Gorge and are looking forward to the next visit.
