Located within Wylie Park, about a mile north of Aberdeen, South Dakota along Hwy 281, is Storybook Land. Remember all of those nostalgic nursery rhymes from your childhood? Jack and Jill, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Humpty Dumpty, and Old MacDonald to name a few? If you have young kids or want to take a stroll down memory lane, Storybook Land needs to be on your bucket-list. Walk along the yellow brick road to the Land of Oz or take a ride on the Storybook Land Express Train and see each nursery rhyme come to life. You can even slide down Jack and Jill's Hill!  Storybook Land is clean and well-maintained, making it even easier to take your time exploring. Every feature within the park is truly magical.

Storybook Land is perfect for a day visit or, better yet, make a family vacation out of your visit and camp at the Wylie Park Campground overnight. Wylie Park is complete with activities for the whole family. Not only is it equipped with standard picnic areas and campground amenities, but Wylie Park also features playground areas, recreational trails, swimming, volleyball, miniature golf, bumper boats, go karts, horseshoes, and bike/skate rentals. Campground reservations can be made over the phone at (605) 626-3512 beginning in January of each year. 

Storybook Land is open from April 15th through October 15th. Food concessions and amusement rides are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Picnic areas within Storybook Land are available. And there are plenty of benches throughout the park as well. Pack plenty of water, sunscreen and a camera!
