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.

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.

I had taken two of my kids here about 4 yrs ago and they had fun...they were 1 and 2 at the time. We hadn't been in a while and it was a beautiful day so we thought we would go! We went about 2 days before they closed for the season so they were out of pumpkins but we... More

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

Our family has always enjoyed Papa's Pumpkin Patch. Before moving to Bismarck two years ago, we'd come from Fargo every year. Papa's Pumpkin Patch was my son's number one choice for his 11th birthday party (this year) with his friends. We invited 13 boys, ages 10 & 11. There were so many different things for them to do. Some were... More

It was amazing to see all of the changes that have taken place since I was at the patch! It is truly a place of fun and joy! The creators know how to draw out the kid in all of us! They are all kids themselves! What always touches me is the welcome and joy that Dave, Colleen, Tracy, Cory,... More

We have been going to Papa's Pumpkin Patch for years. This is a great seasonal attraction that will be sure not to disappoint. Great for people of all ages but especially enjoyed by the kids. Lots of activities. There is a small entrance fee. Pumpkins are available for purchase as well.
