Storybook Land, Wylie Park gearing up for Labor Day weekend

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – Summer officially is coming to a close with Labor Day Weekend.

While the coronavirus pandemic impacted a variety of businesses this year, camping numbers at Wylie Park Campground were solid and traffic at Storybook Land trended up in August, according to Dawn Thorstenson, Concessions Manager at the park.

The park is gearing up for a big Labor Day Weekend, but will remain open for rides for two more weeks. The facility officially closes on Oct. 15.

One would think that out-of-state traffic was down this summer, but that was not the case.
