Camp Fontanelle

Camp Fontanelle


Camp Fontanelle is a facility of the Great Plains Conference of the United Methodist Church. Located off of Highway 91 in Washington County, Camp Fontanelle offers year round rental opportunities for day and overnight activities. Gold Award project ideas are also available at the camp.

Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze
Come find your way in the corn. Our 10-acre corn maze has been open since 2007. The maze design offers two exits and an area set aside solely for Laser Tag. If traversing the long part of the maze, plan on an hour, then stay longer and walk over to the Petting Barn area to meet exotic and domestic animals, bounce in the Bounce House, play in the sand, ride a pony for a small cost (children 80 lbs. or less) and play lawn games. Take the bridge over the ravine and see the Zipline area, where there are 2, 350ft. lines to zip over the ravine and back. At the corn maze area, find concessions (also located by the Zipline) and the Jumping Pillow. Go to our website and find a $1.00 coupon for corn maze activities.

The corn maze is open to the public on weekends during our Second Season* and available for groups of 10 or more during the week with a reservation.
