Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Mount Rushmore, South Dakota
4.5
44 reviews

I couldn't park and walk up because when I went (last October) the government was shut down. There are a few places along the road that you can see it. I might have done that anyway because parking is $11. It's fairly impressive though maybe not as big as the movies lead you to believe.

    I drove through Custer State Park, thinking it would be the quickest way to get to where I was going. While the drive was scenic, various other tourist drivers would stop in the middle of the road at the sighting of any animal. It made for an agonizingly long drive. The State Park itself is quite nice though.

    It's $11 to drive your car into the museum and that pass is good for the rest of the year shall you choose to visit again. Once you walk in they have two levels outside for viewing the memorial and then downstairs they have an indoor exhibit that tells you about how it was made, the workers, the artist etc.

    Drive through natural reserve where you can see North American wildlife in their natural environments. As the name suggests you will be able to see bears, as well as elk, deer, and bison.

    Jewel Cave is the second longest cave system in the world and one of South Dakota's more hidden treasures. The Heavenly Route descends a tortuous series of ladders and stairs into a deep chamber lined with various crystallized stones. The Dungeon route requires more duckwalking and squatting. The best way to see the caves is by a ranger-guided historic lantern ...

    The Crazy Horse Memorial is being carved out of the side of a mountain and was still in progress while I was there. We could make it out from the highway, so it wasn't that hard to find.

    Custer is the best town near Custer State Park to resupply for your camping trip. Custer Country Market is noteworthy because it sells the exotic meats of the region: buffalo and elk. You can also buy local beef jerky. Sturgis beef jerky is good but a bit too salty for my taste.

    I visited the Rushmore Cave before a trip to Mount Rushmore. Although there's some amusement park stuff there, I only did the cave tour, which I found amazing.
