Evening in the spring after a snow gave the memorial different look. Our last visit was in June of 2012 and it was 100 degrees!!!
I'm gonna preface this with saying $11 is a bit dumb for seeing what was intended to be free. That being said, any state park will charge! We went with this being half the families first time. And it was a great experience and very educational! I was quite surprised! The view is amazing and then to learn how it... More
We arrived at the monument later in the evening and it was nice because we didn't have to pay to park, however I would not recommend going around sunset because it is a little hard to see while facing the sun (this is when the trail came in handy!). It is a beautiful sight, but I would recommend going during... More
My husband and I have been here before but this was a family trip and was a new experience for our 2 boys 6 & 8. Parking is on $11.00 and is good for the same vehicle for the rest of the year! They've increased parking and a spot was easy to find. Not more than 20 feet from our... More
We're doing a road trip and my Mum had always wanted to see Mount Rushmore. As part of the trip we paid for a park pass at $80 only to find they charge $11 for parking. This is a rip-off way of getting round giving people entrance with the parks pass and I think it's disgusting. Basically you're paying $11... More

It's obviously a shame that it was never finished but at least be started with the heads! We were lucky enough to go on a sunny day, we... More
I wouldn't make Mt. Rushmore my only reason for a vacation but we were about 30 miles away and ventured up...amazing landmark and history! I feel sad for the people complaining about $11 parking! It's well worth it just to say u have been there!
We have been here before and after they put in the new walkways, etc. Breathtaking views. Nice visitor center. Decent food. A must see.
After seeing the movie about its' construction, and the monument itself, there's nothing worth a revisit. I planned on seeing it late in the day, then staying to see it illuminated at night. The problem is, the gift shops, restaurant, etc., close at 5pm, even though the lighting doesn't occur until sunset (7pm when I was there). So, between 5pm... More
