“Kilkenny Camp 2117, 155th Company CCC, Berlin, New Hampshire, was established May 29, 1933, as one of the camps of the White Mountain National Forest Service.” Once the Dolly Copp Camp Ground was established, the camp focussed on the Berlin hatchery. “A power house, canals, control dykes, and breeding ponds [were] built at the York Pond Fish Hatchery making it one of the largest hatcheries of its kind in the country.”
“Berlin National Fish Hatchery in Coos County, New Hampshire, will be operated and funded by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department under a memorandum of agreement signed October 19, 1982, Jantzen said. Title to the land, which is within the White Mountain National Forest, will be retained by
the U.S. Forest Service.”
The hatchery produces around a million trout per year.
