Find your way out of 7 Southwest Michigan corn mazes

A path through a corn maze.

How hard is it to follow a trail through towering, rustling corn stalks? It’s hard — really hard — in Southwest Michigan. That’s why pre-teens, teens and adults especially love coming each fall to see how twisty, turny, dead-end confusing our local farmers make their mazes. It never fails — just when you think you figured out how to get back to the cider and donuts, you don’t.

This working farm offers family entertainment at its best! Bring your family, a group or just yourself. Two mazes create 15 acres of confusion with a new design theme each year.

Bumbleberry Acres takes reservations!  

Dinges Fall Harvest

Three Oaks | Corn maze and lots of pumpkins | Daily, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Every autumn, the Dinges farmstead turns into a spooky, silly spot for all ages. Dinges transforms its cornfield into a maze, offers hayrides, a pumpkin patch with giant and exotic choices, games and not-too-scary monsters and ghouls. Go on a dinosaur hunt — there’s one lurking around the farm!

Fill up on fresh apple-cider donuts with a choice of toppings, hot and cold cider, and kid-favorite foods and drinks.

Jollay Orchards

Coloma | Fall Harvest Festival weekends in September & October | Fri.-Sun., 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. | Admission: $10

If you haven’t discovered why this farm has been a fall tradition for generations, see why this year. Your admission includes all the fall activities, hayride and 1/2 peck (5 pound) apple picking bag. Do the corn maze, visit the haunted house, play games, find perfect pumpkins and try your angler’s luck in the fishing pond. You can pick apples and grapes, eat their signature donuts with refreshing hot or cold cider, or try Jollay’s apple cider slushy. Don’t leave without fresh-picked vegetables, jams and decorations from the market. 

Overhiser Orchards

South Haven | Challenging corn maze and  pumpkins | Daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. | Admission: $7

You can easily fill a half-day at the century-and-a-half-old Overhiser Orchards. Working your way through the corn maze is one memory-making activity. Also, pick apples, choose your pumpkins and pet and feed the farm animals. Plan your stop around lunch to enjoy their famous corn dogs, Chicago-style hot dogs, hand-cut fries, fruit smoothies and fall favorites — cider and donuts. This is also a source for your fall decorations — cornstalks, bales, gourds and more.

Field of Screams

Niles | Niles Scream Park | Admission: Varies, all tickets online

This isn’t a rustling corn stalks maze. The Field of Screams is part of one of the nation’s premier haunted experiences — and one of the oldest, too. It is among the Scream Park’s most popular attractions. Feel your blood run cold and your heart pound wildly as you make your way through the massive, authentic cemetery, a toxic waste facility, a rundown carnival and return to the birch forest — but oh, how you will wish your GPS could help you escape. Wear comfortable shoes. It is a long, long walk into, and hopefully out of, the unknown! 

Corn maze tips

Being outside in the country is a lot different from your typical amusement or city park experience. Before you go: 

  • Check the weather for the community you are visiting in Southwest Michigan. Call the corn maze venue to see if they are open if it rains.
  • Wear clothing appropriate for the predicted weather and for being in a cornfield. Long-sleeved shirts and pants will protect your arms and legs from the corn stalks. Keep in mind the maze trails may be muddy. Wear closed-toed shoes which you won’t mind getting dirty.
  • Arrive during daylight hours to make navigation easier. Most mazes take 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Watch the time. If you think you will be in the maze after dusk, carry a working flashlight. 
  • Carry a small backpack with a water bottle, a fully charged cell phone, snacks, a working flashlight and a small first aid kit. 
  • Apply bug spray and sunscreen.
  • Study the maze map and corn maze rules before you go. Review them with your children or teens. 
  • Stick to the pathways. Do not trample the corn. Carry out any trash. The designers put a lot of effort into creating the maze and you want to keep it in good condition for future visitors. 
  • Stay calm and enjoy the fresh air. Watch for landmarks to help keep you oriented. If the maze rules allow it, take a brief break to rehydrate and rest. If you feel lost, don’t panic. Corn mazes are challenging, but they are still safe.
  • If you are uncomfortable or truly lost, ask for help from the maze staff or other visitors.
