Roaring River Hatchery and Trout Park
Nestled deep in an Ozark valley and beside Roaring River Spring can be found one of the oldest fish hatcheries in the state. First constructed in 1910, the Civilian Conservation Corps later rebuilt it during the 1930's. The hatchery produces and stocks more than 250,000 rainbow trout each year and most end up right here in the 1.6 miles of trout stream that lie within the boundaries of Roaring River State Park.
Each year, more than 100,000 people come here to fish the crystal clear water. But there is much more to see and do at Roaring River. After a trip to the trout stream, take a hatchery tour, feed the fish, or sit in on a nature presentation. And during the summer, local musicians put on a free bluegrass show every Friday night at the amphitheater. Camping accommodations are outstanding with 187 sites and 26 rustic cabins. The new Roaring River Inn and Conference Center offers fine dining and great rooms.
