Dogpatch... also know as a study of what happens when stupid people and
shysters get together.

Was there as a kid around 72. Sad to see it like this.

I remember visiting the park in 1957 when it was just a briar patch.
Hmmm...wait a second. Was that this place or Ten Buck 3 in the Ozarks?
Hmmm...I think I have my parallel world's mixed up. Sorry about that.
Carry on.

I remember going there when I was a kid when my family and I were passing
through the area. It was pretty fun. The trout pond was so full of trout
you could stand on the bank and look in the water and it looked like the
trout were piled on top of each other. The staff would clean them and cook
them for you too. I hope they turn in into another amusement park and not
just some retreat for wealthy business men to lay around and scratch their
balls. It would be a shame. This place was a big part of a lot of peoples
childhood and time spent with their kids in that area and for people like
us who were passing through.

According to the Wiki article, the teenager Pruett Nance was injured by a
"length of wire strung between two trees", as he rode his ATV through it.
It seemed as though it had been done intentionally, and that is why the
court ruled in his favor. Kind of a nasty thing to do, when the result
could have easily been the death of a kid. There are better ways of warding
off a trespasser.

Sad, I remember going to see it as a kid back in the 1970's when we were on
a road trip through Arkansas. I had read on Wiki that Dogpatch had been up
for sale on e-bay some years back without even one bid on it. Really sad.

I remember my dad always talk about that park and how he went there every
summer when he was a kid. Sucks that they went bankrupt. They also had 3
law suits for injuries.

It would be nice if the Hershends (Silver Dollar City Owners) could
resurrect this park to replace their (now defunct) Celebration City.

I saw Arlene Murphy preform there, back in the 1970's. I would love to find
info about her career. Anyone know about her?

It just sitting there still. Been there twice in the last 2 years. Last
time there where brand new no trespassing sighns. But we trespassed anyway
because fuck them and there was a tractor. I Think they should make it into
a park or a botanical garden not a place where you have to pay to see it

Some kid was riding his 4-wheeler on the property, hurt himself and then
the family sued the owners b/c they didn't have any "Private Property"
signs up. I think the family won the land. :(

Wow, I remember going to Dogpatch USA the summer of '93. I was 7 yrs old.
My grandpa took me, my brothers, and my mom there. My mom recently told me
that the park shut down shortly after we were there. It was so
disappointing, I actually had a lot of fun there. That same grandpa that
took us, also died later that year. :( Good memories though, for sure.

My parents said they took us to Dogpatch when I was little, but I have no
memory of this place. Many people may have fond memories of this park, but,
according to Wikipedia, after Al Capp discontinued the comic strip in 1976
and died in 1979, the park simply couldn't compete with other successful
parks like Silver Dollar City due to the fact that those parks weren't
based on something that had been out of print for so long.

I went to Dogpatch as a kid. It wasn't flashy, but it was different. Flashy
is not always what I'm in the mood for.

Автор Almostflyin2 ( назад)
I was there a few times in the mid to late 80's. It was never "fantastic"
and paled compared to the bigger parks or Silver Dollar City near Branson,
But I liked it. Shame to see its is pretty much dead.

Автор SpeakMyMind500 ( назад)
who or what they're going to sell the park to?

I attended Dogpatch when I was a child and also took my own 2 children
there the last year it was open, 1993. It makes me sad to see it abandoned
like this. Hopefully they can to something with it...I have fun memories of
going there!

Al Capp refused to put any rides into the park when he was in charge.
That's what killed it. Kids don't want to fish all day.

Автор Guru Larry Gaming ( назад)
Lol, we used to do that with our local park too! :D

Автор Guru Larry Gaming ( назад)
Do you think it went down partially because of Capp retiring and the
no-show of a L'ill Abner cartoon show?

Автор Guru Larry Gaming ( назад)
I suppose they could re-open it as it is as a Silent Hill theme Park :D

worked there the summer of 83 and have fond memories of the place... bought
that dirt bike everybody had to look @ when punching the time clock out of
the park. Even with a capital injection it will never be the same... what
kid today is even going to be familiar with the Dogpatch characters? What
about the resort above the park is that operating

Dogpatch opened on May 18, 1968 when I was eleven years old. The news, and
my folks, had talked up the park so much that I pushed for us to get there
as soon as we could, so we drove down from Warrensburg, Mo on May 25 - one
week after it opened. I still have some photos and souvenirs from that
trip. I don't remember us ever going again, but it was still sad to see
something that everyone had so much hope for back then, end up like this.
