Fate of the Flintstones park uncertain.

Flintstones Bedrock City in Custer will close after Labor Day (as it always does), but will it reopen in 2016?

The original owners of the park, which debuted in 1966, are selling it to a local group named Custer Hospitality. We spoke with its representative, who said that Custer Hospitality would like to keep the park going as Bedrock City, but won't know if it can until after it meets with Hanna-Barbera to discuss merchandising, licensing, and other business arrangements. The deal will supposedly be finalized in mid-September -- plenty of time to get the park up and running for the 2016 travel season. Stay tuned.

According to the park management the owners of Bedrock City have retired and sold the park. Plans are to close Labor Day and to redo the park as a western theme for later. The campground will remain. No more Flintstones.

This was a fun and relatively cheap stop. A good change for kids after days of National Parks and history. The "live" show is a weak robotic Fred, Wilma and Dino band. but photo opps, playground and ride you get to go on in Fred's car are awesome. Get the "dollar off" coupon from the SD visitor's guide.

Flintstones Bedrock City

Campy campground and themed attraction based on the popular animated series, The Flintstones. Opened in 1966, this amusing distraction really has a heart and the feel of old time roadside America at its best.

Both cheesy and endearing, it's like going to your own hometown as you hob nob with the first family of Bedrock, The Flintstones and their neighbors, The Rubbles, peeking into their homes. Go for joy rides in their cars, watch their classic films in the Bedrock theater and shop in their gift shop, or enjoy a Bronto Burger at their Drive In Restaurant.

You'll have a gay old time at Bedrock City and don't forget to put the cat out.
