At the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery you will come face to face with the region’s underwater friends, explore karst terrain, see the inner workings of an active honey bee hive, and meet Dale, the lifelike animatronic fish biologist—all by stepping into the unique and exciting exhibit hall at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery Visitor/Environmental Education Center.
Much more awaits the entire family in a fun and engaging educational journey through the Center—located on a working trout hatchery at the base of Wolf Creek Dam and beautiful Lake Cumberland. Visitors are welcome to tour the hatchery and fish the well-stocked creek below the hatchery. A theater, gift shop, picnic areas, wheelchair accessible fishing ramp, special events, and nearby camping and lodging make Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery a destination not to be missed!
Several hiking and biking trails can be found at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery that meander through the woods, along the new Hatchery Creek Trout Stream, and the Cumberland River. Be sure to ask the volunteers at the education center for details.
