Celebrate the season at Papa's Pumpkin Patch, just 1.5 miles north of Bismarck, North Dakota, on River Road. Since 1983, thousands of people have made it tradition to come to Papa's! Let the kids run on the pumpkin-lined paths while you visit with friends over a slice of fresh pumpkin pie with whipped cream. There are dozens of photo opportunities, including the Great Pumpkin's Chair, zip lines, pedal carts, the famous Bale Maze, pony rides, Slide Mountain, pumpkin houses, Sebastian's train ride, hay rides, a pumpkin trebuchet and pumpkin cannon and more! We look forward to greeting you at Papa's! Want to know what's going on at Papa's right now?

This was our first year coming here. We took my son, and while I think he was a little too young to enjoy it, we adults had fun.There was a maze, pumpkin chunkin, lots of food, and much more. I recommend it for a great family fun day.

We go to Papa's every year and it never disappoints. They have a little something for all ages. Super friendly workers, and room to roam so it doesn't feel so crowded.

I love the pumpkin patch! It is always very fun and my nieces and nephew quite enjoy all the things to climb on and slide down. My sister and I have fun racing each other on the zipline every year too! Even adults can go on those (there's a weight limit FYI). Just make sure you check the weather for... More

This is the best pumpkin patch we have ever visited. There is no doubt something for all ages here. It cost $4 a person while 2 and under are free. There are many activities that are free and at a cost. Many climbing hay bale and tire playgrounds with slides. The zip lines ($1) were one of my grandson's favorite... More

My kids love to go here. There's hay bales to climb on, plenty of photo opportunities, and a little kid playing area as well as a "corn crib" which is basically a sandbox with corn instead of sand. There are other activities for a fee, such as pony rides, go carts, zip line, etc. It was a fun time.

I saw a group of full grown adults playing hide and seek and I almost joined them except I didn't know who they were looking for. Our kids had a blast and were so excited about everything they saw and it was ear to ear smiles for all, no matter what age. There were plenty of people there with out... More

This is such a lovely fall activity for kids (including 'tweens" and younger teens. The patch is filled with pumpkin displays and there are lots of fun activities for kids ranging from about 3 through 14 or so. Also, good treats available for purchase. I hope to go again this year!

Papa's Pumpkin patch is more than a pumpkin patch. They have mazes, zip lines, hay bale obstacle courses, a small tractor pulled train and more in addition to the food, crafts, gourds, corn and pumpkins of all varieties. There are a lot of picture taking opporutnities. The prices for pumpkins are very reasonable. (Priced by circumference)
