Only trout hatchery in South Carolina

Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, this is the only trout hatchery in South Carolina. Some 150,000 pounds of rainbow, brown and brook trout are raised here each year for stocking mountain streams and lakes. Visitors are welcome to tour the hatchery or fish in the East Fork, which runs through hatchery grounds. You can also picnic in areas provided for the public. Nearby is the Ellicott Rock Wilderness, which offers a series of scenic trails for hikers.
