Why it’s fun:

- Lots of character cutouts for photo ops
- Tons of decorations for photo ops
- Awesome rural atmosphere
- 3 acre corn maze!
We went to this one after a boring playhouse paint trip to Lowes, so it was super nice to let the kids get out and run around. And there’s a lot of space to do that here. We even took a semi-successful selfie.
The kids were cute exploring here, and the baby loved the big pumpkins … sitting on them and giving them hugs:
We’ve gone to this pumpkin patch almost every year since the kids were born because it’s the closest one to our house. But also because we love it. Here’s a flashback when my daughter was only 10 months old at her first trip to River K:
This pumpkin patch is not commercialized at all, which is refreshing. But they still put a ton of effort into making it fun in a rural setting, including building several character cut-out props for family photos:
And this is one snippet of its 3 acre corn maze. Don’t let this picture fool you, though. We didn’t do the maze. After my hay maze experience earlier in the month, I was like NOPE. Though the corn maze is nice because you can actually see through it a bit and you’re not totally blocked in like in a hay maze. It’s beautifully intricate as well.
The kids were super cute together here:
Until they decided to give eachother hugs on top of a wagon and then knocked each other over.
But all in all, there were no tantrums here and the pumpkin patch wasn’t overwhelming with things to do. It’s just nice old-fashioned pumpkin field fun in a beautiful Paso Robles setting. Highly recommend!
