    Alles !!!!

    A neat stop on a road trip but not worth the massive detour or the $11 parking fee at the memorial.

  • August G.

    Amazing to see and cheap

    Nice evening lighting ceremony. Beautiful tribute to active military and veterans.

  • Jessica F.

    Walk around the park! There's a trail that takes you closer to the monument, a must see! Also, if you drive on by car it's $11 for a year pass!

  • Mohan M.

    Epic monument - beautiful details. Checkout the video show at night - its very nice.

    Mohan Maddi · August 16
  • William C.

    Rushmore is impressive but hard to spend more than 1 hour hear and annoying they charge for parking even with a NPS yearly permit

    William Capodanno · August 15
  • Ashley K.

    Exactly what you'd expect. But better!

    Ashley Kemper · August 5
  • Julie F.

    You can take your dog up to where you can see the monument to take a pic but not into park.

    Julie Fogg · July 26
  • Stephon G.

    Smaller than I expected, but still cool to see

    Stephon Gilder · July 25
  • Stephanie M.

    Park outside the auto gate and walk in cause paying to park for the 10 minutes you'll spend here is dumb.

  • Amber H.

    Eat the ice cream and take the "strenuous" trail

    Amber Hayes · July 20
  • Rachel L.

    Great American history!! So, so crowded, though. Definitely get some ice cream!

    Rachel LaMacchia · July 17
  • John T.

    You can buy beer here.

    John Trupiano · July 12

    Makes you think... God Bless America!

  • Adam P.

    AWESOME!!! A must do.

    Adam Peterson · July 7
  • drew t.

    You could spend 20 minutes here and feel like you've seen everything. It's a check-this-off-the-list type place.

    drew tarvin · June 27
  • Marizza W.

    Only $11 to park here and enjoy the site

    Marizza Whodak · June 2
  • Noah A.

    Pretty amazing big place. Take your family and get here now.

    Noah Adams · May 23
  • Ethan A.

    Visit between 8-Noon for the best lighting!

    Ethan Adams · May 22
  • Jazmyn V.

    An amazing sight to see

    Jazmyn Vee · May 17
  • Oyvind S.

    I was expecting a much more noisy and commercial place. Instead it was well made, lots of information presented in a tasteful way. Clean and nice architecture. And proper quality in shops. Go there!

    Oyvind Solstad · March 23
  • Tariq H.

    It's still really nice to see in winter and there are lots of things to do in the surrounding area. Plan to be around for a couple of days!

    Tariq Hossenbux · February 15
  • Meg F.

    1000% worth the trip. Stay in keystone so you can come back to watch the evening show and see the monument lit up.

    Meg Farmer · December 24, 2014
  • Kate Y.

    It can get crowded with large tour groups.

    Kate Yan · September 28, 2014
  • Kris C.

    Beside the monument itself and video historyn sure to check out both the gift shop and the book store! Also, tasty food in the Carver's Cafe

    Kris Codling · September 7, 2014

    Favorite president? Teddy Roosevelt.

    Chris J · September 4, 2014
  • Mark H.

    Amazing to see, and the Thomas Jefferson vanilla ice cream is the best!

    Mark Hanley · August 31, 2014
  • Elizabeth

    Take the presidential trail down to the artists studio for amazing views and a separate national parks pass cancelation.

    Elizabeth · August 30, 2014
  • Paul N.

    This is a must for everyone's bucket list. In my opinion, the night "light show" is NOT worth coming back to see.

    Paul Navarre · August 27, 2014
  • @nathantwright

    If you're only here for a quick photo and want to avoid the parades of tourists, there's a free parking pullout on the upward slope. It's very small and only fits 5-6 autos.

    @nathantwright · August 23, 2014
  • Anna N.

    Amazing views!

    Anna Nolan · August 20, 2014
  • Robert K.

    Check out the gift shop if you want some sweet souvenirs!

    Robert K · August 18, 2014
  • Anastasiya T.

    Everything is great here. Both the monument and the park leave you speechless. Such a wonderful place to spend some good quality time.

    Anastasiya Taranenko · August 11, 2014
  • Taylor R.

    The gift shop has amazingly cheesy stuff! :) Lots of interesting stuff to look at.

    Taylor R · August 10, 2014
  • Kelly R.

    The ice cream is delicious but HUGE sizes!! Not bad priced.

    Kelly Remily · July 25, 2014
  • L C.

    $11 fee for "parking" at the top. They accept credit cards. Parking Level 3 is easiest but not covered.

    L Cook · July 17, 2014
  • Joseph S.

    If you are reading this, STOP what you are doing and go to CRAZY HORSE. It literally dwarfs Mount Rushmore.

    Joseph Sofia · July 4, 2014
  • Jeremy F.

    Try the Thomas Jefferson ice cream.

    Jeremy Fajman · May 17, 2014
  • Jason D.

    show up 30 minutes after the Sun Goes Down to see a spectacular light show......

    Jason DeMoe · April 24, 2014
  • DK M.

    Contrary to what has been said credit cards ARE accepted. I used a Visa for park entrance and an Amex for Gift Shop (next to cafe) purchses.

    DK Momus · March 16, 2014

    A cold day but the presidents don't seem to mind

    Appeared in National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) as the site of the hidden Aztec gold.

    Filmsquare · November 23, 2013
  • Dan K.

    Parking, gift shop, museum, and cafe took plastic. ATM in the gift shop.

    Dan Kiaha · November 4, 2013

    The great state of South Dakota !

    Kathleen O'Donnell Grone · September 1, 2013
  • Kathleen O.

    Avoid on holidays !

    Kathleen O'Donnell Grone · September 1, 2013
  • Eric O.

    It's not a single attraction - there's lots to do and see! Plan on spending at least two or three hours exploring.

    Eric O · August 24, 2013
  • Rebecca M.

    Worth the view of the video! But, if you have large hips/are heavy set don't expect to be comfy. Seats in theater are made for smaller people. Gorgeous!

    Rebecca Matousek · August 12, 2013
  • Liduvino M.

    A must see that should be on everyone’s bucket list, amazing experience...

    The stone presidents cannot hear your crying.
