I actually think this place is now called RANCH OKOBOJI.
Place was great for people of all ages. Mini course was well upkept along with great shade trees for a hot day. They also have a bar with the best Margarita i've ever had which you CAN bring on the mini golf course. Many activities for the kids including mining where they got to keep there rocks, gemstones, and fossils. Kids also love the pedal tractors. And they even had great shopping there for my wife last year. Mini golf was very cheap and affordable. And they surprisingly have very good food here. There homemade pizza's are better incredible.

IMHO, this is the most fun course of those in the area. The Wizard of Oz theme is well laid out and the "greens" are kept in good condition. It's in a ravine, but there are plenty of shade trees and huge fans to keep golfers comfortable. There are different rides for the Little Ones and a great margarita bar for the Bigger Ones! I love the gift shop too, with lots of windsocks and flags. This Park is a great place to spend a few hours.

The weather was not great for being on the lake so we went mini golfing here. There is a Wizard of Oz theme. Pretty typical obstacles on the course but it is a fun place. They also offer other games to play after you finish your round.

This was a lot of fun. I went to the mini golf and I also did the roller coaster and enjoyed both very much. Well priced, and fun!

We enjoyed playing mini-golf here and the Wizard of OZ theme it had. It was pretty late in the evening when we were there so we didn't take the time to do any of the other activities offered.
