Blending the body of an Apatosaurus with the head of a T-Rex, the large-scale skeleton stands 38 feet tall and 49 feet long and weighs four tons.

The skeleton was constructed in 1994 by Benson Steel, a local fabrication company, and is engineered to withstand winds up to 75 miles per hour. Pickles marks the entrance of the campground’s “fun zone,” which includes an outdoor movie theater, swimming pool, remote control tracks and more. For 25 cents the dinosaur sprays water from its mouth. The dinosaur got its name from a campground fundraiser for a local cancer charity.
