Just to realize, the storybook items in the park are for climbing and photos. I was kind of expecting rides and this is not that. My kids had a great time identifying the items. climbing on peter pans ship, or pooh's treehouse. It would entertain kids under 10 best. They also have a nice section for kids under 5 and... More

This is a nice park for little kids. It is full of storybook characters, all in excellent condition. It is also part park with swings and slides and others built in. I can see if we lived there in town we would be there so often since it is so nice and nicely kept

Kids had a lot of fun here. Don't expect to stay too long, but nice little hour-long walk around with the kids.

This place never ceases to amaze me! It is free and a wonderful afternoon. I highly recommend donations to keep it going for children. My girls were bouncing all through the adventure. The train is great, especially for parents who want to sit for a bit ;) I love this place! And i thank all those who contribute to it!

With my kids being 8 years apart (13 & 5), my husband and I have the fun task of planning our vacation with the attempt of trying to meet both of their needs. Therefore attending the Storybook Island was solely for the benefit of my youngest son. We were leaving Custer, SD with Kansas City, MO as our final destination... More

Totally unique storybook themed park. Great for kids age 10 and under. Plan to spend about an hour or two at the park with your kids running from one thing to the next.

Our kids aged 12 and 7 loved it. We attended a small magic show which was great. There is kids old time favorite songs and Disney music that plays in the park. The park is a free attraction.

Super fun park! My two grandsons ages 4 and 3 loved it! Lots of climbing, exploring and slides. There's even a fun little train ride for a fee. The best part was the park is free (with the exception of the train ride)! It was a hot day in July when we went and the park was not crowded at... More

This is the best place that you never knew existed! We only had an hour to spend here, and our daughter ran to everything. She loved this place. This is also a photographer's paradise. BRING YOUR CAMERA! I would drive all the way to Rapid City just to go to this place! And that's saying something. It's 10 hours away!... More

Even my 8 and 11 year old enjoyed a short stay and it's free. They both enjoyed the Bedrock, however, they liked this just as much if not more and without the $40 charge to enter. Well worth the stop after spending hundreds of dollars per day on the rest of the stops.
