Craig Brook is one of more than 70 federal hatcheries in the US operated by the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Visit the Atlantic Salmon Museum, for a look at salmon fishing, past and present. View adult and juvenile salmon in a natural brook, hike the 1-mile interpretive nature trail, suitable for all ages, or climb Great Pond Mountain.
