“Dated, not what it used to be.”

Pickles Gap Village

Reviewed 30 March 2018

Interesting, little place. Quite Dated. Nice main shop with goodies, but other village shops are lacking. Restrooms...mehh. We were there for a total of about 20 minutes. When we used to go by there on the way to Branson as a kid, it was such a wonderful place. So many good memories. Wish they would update it, what a cute little stop it could be.

My husband had made the trip to Conway so he could surprise me with some goodies from this place on our anniversary. He was promised that they'd make what he wanted, and confirmed 3 days before and even given a time to go pick up. They called the night before at 9 pm to tell him that they won't be able to make chocolate covered strawberries because there were no good strawberries that day? There was no attempt at making it up to us with something else, or really an apology. This is just no way to do business. I wish that this place had costumer service to match its "charm". Very disappointing and we won't be returning

Just the name signals 'Fun!' The name is the best part of the attraction.
Perhaps at one time it may have been a fun place, but unfortunately that time has past.
There are some flea market venders, a not-so- great restaurant, a few farm animals to pet.
That's about it.

For years we have seen this place while traveling to and from Branson. Yesterday we decided to stop in and check it out. It was not a pleasant experience. We visited one of the buildings which had 3 large rooms. The first was filled with a random assortment of items (displayed poorly) and the other two were essentially empty just filled with items that needed to visit the trash can. A quick walk across the parking lot took us to a candy shop with signs promoting their delicious fudge. We opened the door and were greeted by a musky overpowering smell instead of the candy smells we anticipated. We quickly retreated and headed to our car. The restaurant was closed so that was likely a blessing in disguise.

We should have stopped years ago as I expect that it was once a cool break from the long vacation drive. Hopefully someone will focus on bringing it back otherwise I would expect it to totally close soon.

In the meantime, my advice would be keep on driving when you see this place.

We travelled to Pickles Gap Village because of the name. We understand that the owners just sold so the village is in transition. It has a lot of potential to be a stop to say you have been to Pickles Gap Village. We walked thru an "antique" shop (people rent out space for booths). There was a gun and knife shop that was not open. Did not go into the fudge shop.
