Storybook Island is a delightful place in a beautiful setting. It is designed for children but enjoyed by all ages. I take all of my out of town visitors here. My visiting teenage grandchildren still like to visit just for the great memories. It is totally free but please make a donation to keep this family park to keep it... More

I have a 7yo boy and a 2yo boy. They loved this attraction!! The enjoyed exploring and seeing all the characters. We spent about 2 or 3 hours at this park. I highly recommend it as it is free and lets the kids run off some energy.

My family loves Storybook Island. We go at least once a year. The park is free. My kids love to crawl around on the figures, play in the sand, and play the 3 little pigs game. My kids love to ride the train (that costs $1 per kid). It is a great place to relax and watch the kids have... More

My family took a road trip out west this summer and stopped here along the way. Well worth the time! Our children, ages 5 & 8, loved seeing all of the oversized fairytale figures and scenes. What a bonus that it was free with reasonably-priced concessions and toys in the gift shop. Made for great photo ops.

It looked neat as a children's attraction, but they were closed for the season. Would like to visit during the summer.

Fantastic place for younger kids. Storybook and Fantasy characters to interact with and play on. Free, but donations keep it going. Super place to take the kids.

Travelers should know that this park closes the end of September and from what a local told me opens again for a bit around Christmas time. I wish it were open during the entire year as we are off season travelers. My nephew was really disappointed as we looked longingly through the fence. You'll love it if you can go... More
