It's so cool to see landmarks that you've heard about your whole life. The fog barely allowed us to see the presidents, but it was a worthwhile experience. Parking was $11. One of the original diggers was autographing books in the gift shop. While you are nearby, be sure to drive Needles Highway to see the presidents "framed" by the... More

The park is dedicated. I really wanted to see the lighting ceremony but the fog rolled in. We drove up anyway and the park was open even with zero viability. We watched and listened to the ranger speak on our great country and the vision of the sculpter. The video was about 20 minutes and as it poured rain we... More

I have always been curious about Mount Rushmore so it was a great delight to finally visit South Dakota, and see it. Before we got there, our tour guide had filled us with lots of information about the Mountain and its famous sculptures. We saw a DVD on how it was built and what the mountain looked like before it... More

Even though we are not American we couldn't help being impressed and somehow inspired by this monument. It is a very easy site to visit with good parking and easy access to the monument. You see the Presidents faces immediately on arrival and they get even more impressive as you walk up the flag entrance. The visitor centre has easy... More

There is only one Mt Rushmore and you have to see it. We made a special trip from Florida to see it and it was worth the effort. There is a lot to see around Mt. Rushmore too! We visited at a slow time and there weren't many people there. I understand that the crowds can be large during the... More

My son and I made an overnight trip to Mt Rushmore ,Crazy Horse monument and the Badlands. Only regret is we didn't have more time. We were there May 13 and there was snow on the ground from the recent winter storm. The Presidential Trail was closed secondary to the snow. You must watch the twenty minute film on the... More

I know that technically is not completed, but the current finished product is amaizing. Worth the trip from Iowa. Nice facilities and easy visit.

What a fun place to visit!! It was worth the 16 hour drive! The kids loved every minute of it! From being in sworn in as junior Rangers to touring the park and watching the movie about its inception. It was a a fantastic experience. Would recommend for all ages!!!
