  • Spent a few hours here in my recent family trip to rapid city. Super neat playground which my kids loved. It is so different than any other playground and is well kept I would encourage a visit.  more »
  • We spent about 2 hours at Storybook Island with an 5 and 8 yr old. They loved it. The place was clean, had water fountains through out. Definitely a place to come again.  more »

  • It was a Great little place to visit. Super cool how they have the story book scenes from when in was a kid. Not a bad place to stop when your wanting to kill time on a vacation. Was neat! !
  • We have been coming here for years. They have made some updates to the activities. More than there used to be. There are treat stands if you need a ice cream or drink. Very nice place to take the little ones. Best of sll it's free
  • I used to come here from when I was a kid and I still love it. On December, they would put lights all over the playgrounds and they would sell hot chocolate and cookies too. It is so fun to be there.
  • A perfect family place! Whimsical and fun. The park does not charge a set admission, but donations are welcome. Perfect for kids of all ages.
  • After checking the official website several times we were rudely greeted with you may not bring your animal in! If I would have known this we wouldn't have promised our granddaughter that we would go.
