We have been coming here every year since I was young. We love taking pictures in the same places every year so we have a growth picture chart! This is also a great place to come when the Christmas lights are up!

I have no complaints about the park itself. It is an amazing park to take the children too. Renting the birthday house is another issue. Once filling out and sending in contract for renting, their was almost know communication regarding the rental. After numerous emails and calls that went unanswered, reservation was never even confirmed. Had to call to be... More

This park was much larger than we realized and there was so much to do. It was a good break for the kids. We can't believe it was free!

I love when this opens every year! It is seasonal but the things to do here are great. Kids love the character statues and the play things.

If you have kids with you, this is a must stop. For a donation the kids can run off some energy and enjoy themselves. The plays are done well with local talent. The little snack areas are reasonable and diverse. It is an excellent stop during the Christmas season as well, totally lit up!

Went to see the park with the grandkids, drove around the Black Hills to Heart Ranch, brought some ice cream and enjoyed the sceanary. Mostly enjoyed the room and swimming at the motel

Can't beat the price! Kids love it. Great way to kill some time and wear the kids out. They also have a stage and hold a few plays in the summer.

This was a fantastic park and it was free. They have a very nice shop that we bought some little souvenirs in and a fun little train. Our daughter was 7 at the time and this year we are going back with our 2 1/2 year old. It will be a perfect place to take her. We are excited to... More

I was really excited to go and visit this attraction in Rapid City and nothing that I had read said that it was closed during the winter months. It is. I was told by a person in town that it is seasonal and usually opens in mid May.

How can you not love Storybook Island, it is a wonderful park for your little ones. There are different areas for different ages and it is so fun to walk around in. I cannot believe this is free (keep that in mind and place a donation). They have picnic tables set up throughout the park and concessions (affordable) and ask... More
