Our parent company, Xanterra Parks & Resorts, has received word from the U.S. National Park Service that the entrances and roads into our National Parks, including Mount Rushmore, will remain accessible if there is a government shut down. This means that our lodges, restaurants, retail gift shops and services will be accessible for business and welcoming guests and visitors from around the world.

If a government shutdown does occur government provided services (visitor center, public restrooms, etc.) will not be available. The National Park Service will provide emergency services, but please be very careful when venturing into the park.

Thank you for your patience. We sincerely appreciate your choosing Xanterra Parks & Resorts for your travel needs.

Welcome to Mount Rushmore National Memorial

There is more than gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Above dense forests and pristine streams, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial represents a national treasure.

Symbolizing the ideals of freedom and democracy, it is a tribute to four presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln and their invaluable contributions to the United States. Mount Rushmore National Memorial represents not only the past, but also a promise for the future. It is a place surrounded by American history, where the names of Gutzon Borglum and Crazy Horse are still heard; where the buffalo once again run free in Custer State Park and the vision of the Keystone miners still cast a dim shadow on long deserted claims. Whether a lifelong destination or a stop on your vacation itinerary, your visit to Mount Rushmore will be one you will tuck in your memory book forever.

Xanterra Parks & Resorts is proud to operate retail and restaurant facilities at the memorial. We look forward to your visit and strive to make it as memorable as possible. Be sure to dine with the presidents for breakfast or stop by and have a special ice cream cone, crafted from Thomas Jefferson’s original 1870 recipe. Then, share the moment on Instagram with #jeffersonicecream and view your photo on our website.
