This orchard is absolutely beautiful--one of the prettiest I've ever seen. The bakery is also great. Everything is delicious. However, its often way too busy to even enjoy. On some weekends there is a line to even get into the building to get your basket...More

I have been here numerous times. Picking your own apples is fun and great exercise. You are likely to see deer in the orchard or in the adjacent woods if you are vigilant.

Fun to get out and pick your own apples, the gift shop has neat things. Line was backed up to the door, but moved quickly and the smell of the apple donuts was amazing. They should bottle that smell.

A perfect weekend drive out into the country a bit north of Iowa city brings one to rolling hills covered with apple trees. Perfect fall days see many families out picking apples while those less adventurous stock up inside the store. Just try to leave...More

You cannot go wrong with a visit to the Wilson Orchard. It is just plain old good Iowa fun. Rides on hay racks to the orchard, apple picking, and relaxing. You can get food to eat, plus a shopping area. Well worth the visit!
