This is a great field i have played on both husker and warped and they are good fields too, but both are way too expensive, 500 paintballs costs more at both these fields than Mad Cows entry fee (ten bucks) and the paint is about half as expensive as at warped or husker (about $13.50 for 500) thats about what wal-mart sells it for, and this is good paint too worr stuff nothin crappy. The refs were excellent, they were fair and always willing to help you out if you had a problem with anything even carrying you gear if you brought too much. They had like five fields while we were there two concept fields, one concept field with a hay fort, and two woods fields a large one and smaller one, (we didnt play on the smaller one) but they we all pretty good. The only problems i encountered we a lack of bunkers or trees of useable size in the woodsball field and some of the spools in the field with the fort could be turned a little to allow the guys in the fort to get out if they have to. But thats it. Great field, Great refs, Great prices, it worth the drive, go there you wont regret it.

This is a new field in the area with a lot of potential. They have very competitive prices at $10 field fee, $13.50 for a bag of 500(Worr paint).
This field has a huge amount of space that can be dedicated to paintball. At the moment the field is made up of a 5-7-man spool field, a 3-5-man spool field and a 3-5-man fort field. The 5-7-man field has a good mix of long and short lanes with varying levels of visibility. The diagonal lanes are pretty short while the vertical lanes are long and open. The horizontal lanes are pretty much closed at mid-field, but open up a lot at each end. This tends to break any game on this field into 2 or 3 smaller and very intense games. The 3-5-man spool field is much more open and has a lot of open lanes in every direction leading to short, fast moving games. Not for the faint of heart or anyone who likes to hug the back bunker. Now we come to the fort field. This is a speed-ball field with two large squares. One inside the other located in the center half of the field. The outside square has two large openings in facing walls while the center square has offset openings. This field also has a large number of bunkers around the outside of the fort/squares in the center. This by far was my favorite field. It was fun to play on and was different than most other fields. Just as a side note, These 3 fields take up less than a 25 percent of the open space that could be used. At the moment they have 2 wood fields. One is small, but fun. The other is very large and could hold one heck of a game. The area is mostly old growth and so you have a good number of medium to large sized trees spread out over the entire area with a good amount of open space in-between. The wood fields are still being worked on, but once some bunkers get put in, the wood fields should be a bunch of fun.
Good: good prices.
You can bring your own paint
Very friendly group of people.
Huge potential for some large fields.
Bad: staff lacks experience.
Only have CO2 right now.
Conclusion : This field needs some work, but that work is being done as fast as the owners can do it. Given a little time and support this field could become a great place to play. Go there and give it a chance, let them know what you like, they will listen.
This is a great field, the obstacles are constantly changing, the prices are great, and the location is perfect . All in all this field is great for beginners and pros alike. They have just got their permit and are now open for business. They are opened Monday through Friday by reserve and on the weekend to walk-ons.
This is an awesome f ield. I have been there about 10 times, and each time the fields have changed. The best thing is they only charge 10 dollars for entry, and you can bring your own paint, or you can purchase theirs at $13.50. that is the cheapest that I have found 500 balls for
