A reader emailed asking for suggestions on pumpkin patches, so I posed it to the Springs Bargains fans on Facebook and got lots of great suggestions!
Miner’s Pumpkin Patch is located on the grounds of the Western Museum of Mining Museum in north Colorado Springs, and has an apple cider press, pumpkin smashing, a hay maze, and more! Check out the information here.
Colorado Pumpkin Patch is located in Monument and has slides, laser tag, and more. This pumpkin patch has been around for awhile but changes locations every few years (I think most recently they were at the Jellystone camp in Larkspur). Check out all they offer here.
Long Neck Pumpkin Farm is in northeast Colorado Springs and offers hay rides, a hay slide, and other fun games. You can check out their website here.
Wishing Star Farm in Ellicott (east of Colorado Springs) was a popular suggestion, with readers mentioning lots of family-friendly activities and a plethora of pumpkins to choose from. Here’s their website.
Laura and Aaron suggested Dianna’s Pumpkin Patch in Canon City, which has a corn maze, too. Here’s their website (be sure to scroll down to see all the content).
If you’re willing to drive almost to Boulder, Caren recomended Anderson Farms in Erie, saying “It’s far, but there is a ton to do. Even for teenagers. It’s so fun. Bands, Hayrides, zombie paintball, corn mazes, kid hay bale maze, baby goats, lots of fair food, train ride, firepits, bike go carts, gold mining, pumpkin catapults.” You can find out more about Anderson Farms here.
Another up-north option is Miller Farms in Platteville. I haven’t been since my kids were toddlers, but several years ago we enjoyed this place for its bargain of you-pick vegetables and kid activities. Check out their website here.
And one more option north Denver that a friend recommended to me: Osborn Farm in Loveland. She said it’s a real midwest-style pumpkin patch, with lots of pumpkins, cool gourds, and Indian corn for purchase; plus a barrel train and hay rides. Here’s their website.
If you have another favorite pumpkin patch to suggest, please leave a comment on this post or email me and I’ll get it added!
