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!

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.

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!

Papa's Pumpkin Patch is a great way to spend a lazy fall day with your family. They have numerous slides, castles etc made from large square hay bales for the kids to play on, pony rides, wagon rides, treats, and don't forget to purchase the perfect pumpkin(s) for your Halloween jack-o-lantern. Only open in the fall

Papa's Pumpkin Patch has become my family's newest fall favorite. We visited last fall when the weather was still nice, and we had the time of our lives. Even my teen boys had fun climbing, exploring, and pumpkin-picking. The place covers tons of area, has lots to do, is pet-friendly, and also offers great snacks and drinks. We'll be back... More

Fun place to spen some time outdoors in the fall..great place to get your pumpkins. Great spots for pictures. Pumpkin launcher is fine to watch. When we went the wasps had became hard to deal with. Also the pumpkin cookies are a joke, Store bought junk. I would pay much more for something home made.

Papas pumpkin patch is a really cute and fun place to visit. Lots of activities for kids such as a mini zipline, pony rides and lots and lots of pumpkins. Lots of play areas made out of hay bales and huge tires. It was a fun trip and inexpensive as well!
