Andy’s Trout Farm opened to the public in 1965. It was founded and developed by Andy and Hazel Cope with some help from their family.
In the late 1950’s, while Andy was operating a service station in Dillard, Ga, many travelers inquired about places to fish and camp. The Copes used some mountain land, which they owned in the Betty’s Creek Community, to develop Betty’s Creek Recreation Area. Later, they changed the name to Andy’s Trout Farm and built rental cabins along the stream. They had found the ideal spot to raise rainbow trout . The cold mountain stream flowing from the mountains of North Carolina into Betty’s Creek provided the water needed. It took the family several months to get a hatchery in operation for hatching and ponds built for growing the trout. they began running the fish farm selling trout that were caught from the catch-out ponds. They dressed the catch and even had a restaurant across the road from the fishing office.
In the early 1970’s, Jerry and Becky, Andy and Hazel’s son and daughter-in-law opened Copecrest Resort. Copecrest catered to Western Square Dancers. Jerry has created the Wildcat Express, a two hour journey back in time. This is a great adventure for all ages.
