Dogpatch USA -- new article

Back in the 70s and 80s many people would combine a trip to Branson with a trip to Dogpatch USA just south of Harrison AR. I can remember going to Dogpatch and Silver Dollar City during a week of vacation.

While SDC and Branson thrived Dogpatch fell on hard times. Here is an article and pictures from this week's edition of Arkansas Business.

Thanks for that article Biscuit, very interesting history.

Thanks for sharing some local history with us.

I remember fishing in the lake and then they cooked the trout for us. Was some good eating. That was my go-to spot for homemade preserves. Enjoyed watching them being made as well as eating them later. Found a lot of items for gifts that I couldn't find anywhere else. People were all fun and loved to share stories with the visitors. Some good memories from back then.

My grandparents lived in Harrison. I loved Dogpatch. I would like to go look around the property.

I really hope they do re-build the trout farm in its original location (near what became the employee entrance off Hwy. 7). We used to go down to the trout farm and spend enjoyable days before Dogpatch was ever conceived.
