Absolutely beautiful! The walking path and visitor center was very nice. We loved the avenue of flags at the entrance, it makes for great photo opportunities. We were a little disappointed that the sculptors studio was closed but the trip was still very educational and...More

The statue itself is pretty underwhelming. You can't use your America The Beautiful pass and parking is a nightmare in a gross enormous cement parking garage. It is an anticlimactic experience and the place is crowded full of fat white people. The crazy horse memorial...More

What an amazing place to visit. The shear size of the sculpture is breath taking. There is a $10 parking fee which is very reasonable considering the parking ticket is good for a year. This is now marked off the bucket list.

Not much to do, but still beautiful. Small museum underneath. $10 per car to get in, only $5 with senior discount

Went to Mount Rushmore with a Boy Scout Troop. A lot of interesting information in the museum. It was fun to find our state's flag in the gallery of flags leading to the monument. The gift shop has just about anything you could imagine. If...More

This was well worth the short drive from Rapid City. The dreary day could not dampen the experience. The trial was excellent to see different views of the mountain. The visitors' center had a nice short film and great exhibits. There are three gift/bookstores so...More

Rushmore is one of those must-see attractions. We liked walking the trail and viewing the flags, too. I wish we would have returned at night to see it lit up, but perhaps another time.

We really enjoyed our visit here. We were alarmed at first as when we got there the mountain was covered in mist, but it cleared off and on, so got several good looks (it rained all day and was cold). The museum was interesting we...More

We got lucky! When we arrived by 0900 the fog had passed. Park fee is $10 but the pass is good for a year but only for that particular vehicle. Nice gift shops and self guided tours.

Hi earthtrekkie - Absolutely! Custer State Park is a gem - one of my most favorite parks to visit. The wildlife can be plentiful (prairie dogs, burros, bison, pronghorn, and more), but just be aware that you might just... More

I've actually only visited Mt. Rushmore in August and usually in the mid- to late afternoon. The weather most times has been fine, but one of my earlier memories (1994) of going there was when there was fog so thick (like... More
