Corn Cob Acres Welcomes Groups and Field Trips

Groups

Corn Cob Acres is a great place to explore as a group. To qualify as a group, you must have at least 20 people and the group leader must pay for the entire group. Refer to our Dates Time Prices page for details on Group pricing. Groups are not required to call in advance but may certainly do so if you wish.

Corn Cob Acres is also a wonderful and exciting place for birthday parties and Field Trips. We look forward to hosting your group very soon!

Field Trips

In order to accommodate Educational Field Trips for elementary schools, day cares, preschools, clubs, home school groups, and any other groups, we are open on select weekdays during our fall season. With plenty of bus parking, educational opportunities galore, and a seemingly endless number of activities, Corn Cob Acres is the ideal place to combine education with outdoor physical activity.

However on September 30, October 4, 5, 6, 12, and 13 our park is closed to the general public and only open privately for Field Trips. Pre-registration is required along with a non-refundable deposit of $50.00.
