We went in August 2013 with our 2 daughters, ages 7 & 4, and it is sooooo worth it! Free admission, which makes it even more worth it. There is so much to do for the little ones. More than enough photo ops with more characters than I can remember. There is a variety of characters/book scenes to play on... More

It's wonderful at Christmastime. Great opportunities for pictures. Hot chocolate and cookies available to purchase. Have been when it's not Christmas and it's great for small children.

Storybook Island has been a fixture in Rapid City for decades. At Christmas all the storybook exhibits are lit at night starting the Friday after Thanksgiving with tens of thousands of lights. The rest of the year admission is free but during the holidays a nominal charge of $2 is in place. There is a small child's train that goes... More

This place is better than watching cartoons. I sat on the 101 dalmations bowl of dog food and it felt like I remembered it from when I was young.

Tons of wonderful storybook displays for kids (and adults) to climb on, play on, and admire. Beautiful park. Large enough to spend a day. Small enough to visit in a couple of hours.
