Go to any pool store, or home improvement center.

Pet stores charge far too much for their sand.

Every town has swimming pool/spa stores, but they are usually small shops located in out-of-the-way places. So if you don't own a pool or hot tub, they are the kind of place you'd never notice! Check your local yellow pages.

Now that I think about it, Minnesota may not have a lot of swimming pools (besides the indoor commercial-scale ones). But I'm sure you have spa/hot tub stores, and you can call and ask if they carry pool filter sand.

Play sand is more expensive than pool filter sand (that I've found). And it's also much finer, which may make your water cloudier, and be harder to clean. But to each their own.
