Hardy's Reindeer Ranch

1356 CR 2900N, Rantoul, IL 61866


The North Pole has moved to Central Illinois. Try your luck at the 6+ acre corn maze, the Grand Prix style race track, pick a pumpkin or a Christmas tree (depending on season), stop by the fascinating gift shop and, of course, see the reindeer!

Hardy's Reindeer Ranch in Rantoul offers a unique attraction for young and old alike. Pick a pumpkin in the pines, browse through the quaint gift shop, try your luck at figuring out the mysteries of the 10-acre Cornfusion maze and most importantly, kiss a real Alaskan reindeer! From November through December, the reindeer ranch is transformed into a Christmas wonderland. The store is reminiscent of days gone by with a bot-bellied stove, twinkling lights and wonderful smells. The western style banquet facility is available for a "Wild West" BBQ or outdoor weenie roast. Group entertainment packages are available.
