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.

+free spirit : Agree that it not be made into a private retreat for the wealthy scratching their saggy scrotes :-p Better to let the snakes and spiders live there in peace. My family stopped there on the way back from Arkansas when my father was scoping out retirement communities in the early 70s. He was really pissed when we came back to his immaculate '69 Camaro and someone had slapped on a Dogpatch bumpersticker on the shiny chrome bumper. I even thought that was tacky and I was just a little kid.

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.

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.

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.

Lol, we used to do that with our local park too! :D

Guru Larry GamingGuru Larry Gaming (7 лет назад)
Do you think it went down partially because of Capp retiring and the no-show of a L'ill Abner cartoon show?

Guru Larry GamingGuru Larry Gaming (7 лет 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.
