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?

Our family visited the attraction over the weekend and we all (ages 7 - 56) enjoyed it very much. There are several rides, including live ponies, demonstrations of pumpkin launching by trebuchet and compressed air cannon, zip lines, and much more. Plus there are several large hay bales for the kids to climb on and great photo ops!

This place is so fun! There are thousands of pumpkins to pick from, so you are sure to get the perfect one. They have hay bale mazes, hayrides, all kinds of fun little activities for the little ones as well as the big. You cannot miss a visit to this place in the fall. Great photo opportunities and wonderful fall... More

I have lived in many more highly populated areas that claimed to have wonderful pumpkin patches, but this one is far and away the best I've ever been too. It has everything a pumpkin patch should have in a beautiful location. We are so lucky to have this in Bismarck! Love the pumpkin lawn and the barn for pictures. The... More

i Love this place. It is full of pumpkins and orange and red leaves and lots of fall colors. If u come on the right days of the week u can go on a train ride thru the whole place. That is fun. Also fun just to walk around and look. Fun to buy a small pumpkin to take home.

This patch is on the outskirts of town situated an expansive farm. Papa does a fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of play, exploration and pumpkins everywhere. We enjoyed climbing the hay bail mountain and the hay bail maze. This is a really fun and interesting "out of suburbia" outdoor activity. Definitely recommend especially for families with children.

We visited here in October as part of a homeschool field trip. It was really a lot of fun for everyone from 3-18. There are special places set up for photographs and many opportunities to take family pictures here as well. Small concessions and pumpkin buying are on the grounds as well as lots of stuff for kids to do... More

The Fall season wouldn't be complete without a trip here. There is always so much fun things for the kids to do. New things added each year. Prices are very reasonable. Great for all age groups!
