Grab the kids and visit any of these fantastic corn mazes and farms. There is so much to see and do, and I’d recommend you try to go to at least a couple of these places. You will have the best time trying everything out!

This family-owned corn maze will make you leave with a smile on your face. You can feed the ducks, enjoy a football throw game, have a friendly competition of pumpkin bowling, or play on the hay trampoline.

Of course, the true star of the show is the impressive corn maze. There is so much to see and do, just minutes from Lake Hartwell.

Denver Downs Farm

There is so much to experience and see at this heavenly fall adventure. Enjoy the musical pumpkin light show after dark, or navigate the corn maze with a flashlight. It’s slightly spooky yet impossible not to have a blast! They have a jumping jumbo pillow, zip line, tricycle races, pig races, and SO much more.

It’s completely impossible to be bored when you’re visiting Washinton Farms! Choose from a wide plethora of activities such as duck racing, barnyard board games, hamster wheels, a pirate ship, inflatables, slides, pig races, and MORE! You really need to add this place to your agenda.

Not only does Little Cane Creek Farm have an incredible 5-acre corn maze, but they also offer hayrides, a sunflower patch, pumpkin patch, and a play area. Plus, they have concessions too. You will need a nice snack after all your playing all day!
