Park
“The Grayling Fish Hatchery is an historic site and current fishing spot for kids (and adults). This hatchery was a DNR site that serviced the area fish stocking needs. Now no longer used for stocking, it is an educational site ran by a local angler's association. You can buy (or catch) your rainbow trout and they'll clean and bag it for you. The hatchery also has a pond on site filled with rock bass, blue gill, turtles and all sorts of warm water species. The pond is designated as a kids' fishing spot. They have free fishing poles to borrow and use and worms can be purchased for $1. This is the best place in the area to take young children.”
