Celebrate the season at Papa's Pumpkin Patch, just 1.5 miles north of Bismarck on River Road. Since 1983, thousands of people have made it tradition to come to Papa's and celebrate fall. Let the kids run on the pumpkin-lined paths while you ponder life and visit with neighbors over a slice of fresh pumpkin pie with whipped cream. There are dozens of photo opportunities, including life-sized, real-along stories, the famous Bale Maze, pony rides, Slide Mountain, pumpkin houses, Sebastian's train ride, hay rides and more! We look forward to greeting you at Papa's! Want to know what's going on at Papa's right now? Visit Papa on Facebook at Papa's Pumpkin Patch & Papa's Polar Patch.

This is really a neat place to visit. It is best to come early on in the season, as they sometimes run out of pumpkins. There are a lot of fun things to do for the family...pumpkin launching, zip line, mazes, wagons, hayrides, pony rides, etc.... some have a small fee. Plan on spending a couple hours here. It usually... More

Lots of fun for the kids and the kid in you. If you do not like huge crowds, try to go during the week. There are a lot of great oppurtunities to take pictures with great backgrounds. I have to give it up for the founders, what a great family event. If you want to catch the pumkin catapult make... More

You can easily spend several hours there, especially if you take children. We took the buggy ride and the train ride. We toured the entire park. Not one complaint of being tired. We all enjoyed ourselves.

pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere and the corn bin for the kids is so much fun. The family and staff members are so friendly and helpful. Wish they had more vendors, crafts and seasonal items for sale. Nice selection for snack foods and drinks. Its a great way to spend the day.

It's fun to go to Papa's Pumpkin Patch in the fall. During the winter, there's also Papa's Polar Patch. Lots of pumpkins and people of all ages having fun. Be careful if you go into the wooded trails, though--there are usually bees hanging around (not fun). Otherwise, the pumpkin patch is a cool afternoon activity for the whole family during... More

Papa's Pumpkin Patch is my favorite place to go with my grandchildren in the Fall. They love to see all the pumpkins, play in the mazes and enjoy the great North Dakota weather. It is. Great place for family pictures as everyone is always smiling and laughing. If you have never been to the pumpkin patch you need to plan... More
