I spent a few days at Wylie Park Campground in Aberdeen, South Dakota. With its small zoo and amusement park, it's a great place for families with small children. For me, it was a pleasant place to walk in the sun and rest before moving on to the Ashfall Fossil Beds at my next stop.

Wylie Park Campground

This is a lovely, spacious park, the campground being only one part. There are abundant activities for families with children and young teens, as my photos will attest.

The site was ample in width; I had no tightly packed neighbors. However, the access lane was somewhat narrow, which meant backing in challenged my trailer skills; and the site was somewhat short, forcing my truck to stick out a bit into the lane.

Once situated, it was a pleasant camping experience. It would have been nice to have my grandkids with me as I tramped around the park.
