Looking for something different to do this summer? Something's that's free? Then plan a visit to the Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center.

Located in Warren County and open seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Pequest is the perfect destination for a trip to the country. Whether a toddler or a fly fisher with decades of experience, Pequest provides a unique experience. Children love seeing the monster trout in the demonstration raceway in front or with a fish eye's view of trout in the indoor tank. Interactive exhibits and displays will engage and inform children in a way no other facility in the state can. And adults will gain a new appreciation for the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's trout stocking program and how 600,000 trout are raised for public angling.

There are also hiking trails through a variety of habitats. Wildlife, including bald eagles, can be observed. Picnic areas provide a shady place for lunch, and a riverside parking area provides access for anglers or just viewing one of the state's top trout waters, the Pequest River.

A full schedule of family programs is offered, at no charge. Learn basic fishing skills at Pequest - equipment is provided.
