Aberdeen, South Dakota Campground
The other great thing in Aberdeen was the campground. We stayed
at a city park which had a storybook land complete with figurines in a
huge park. The figurines were incorporated into the play picture,
as in the “House that Jack Built” which had a huge slide coming out of
the side of it. It was great! And, since Aberdeen is the birthplace
of L. Frank Baum, author of the Wizard of Oz, there was a Land of Oz, complete
with a yellow brick road which leads from Munchkin land to the Haunted
Forest and ultimately to the Wizard’s giant hot air balloon. There
is a petting zoo, a larger zoo, a waterslide, two lakes with paddle boats
and canoes, a train, bumper cars, and some kind of water bumper cards.
All but the rides are free.
