Here's a somewhat random assortment of photos from Knott's Berry Farm.
Jumping forward to 1977, and take a look at the old fire wagon. This amazing contraption was originally steam-powered. It was like a train without tracks. I'm sure it's been many years since it has moved under its own power; now it's happy to have kids climbing aboard.
Here's a very authentic looking Prairie Schooner over at the Covered Wagon Camp. Folks could sit in one of these and look down into a dug-out amphitheater (which had additional seats/terraces, sculpted with concrete to look something like rockwork). They could eat a box lunch or dinner and enjoy live musical performances and square dancing. Swing your partner, do-si-do! A group known as The Wagonmasters played at the Wagon Camp for many years.
