There are a decent number of parking spaces in the lot, but just for a single row of cars. I think you would probably have to park unconventionally using several single spaces. So it would depend on how busy it is the day you visit. I suggest called the hatchery for better information. Here's the contact info.:Sandwich Hatchery
