Keystone, South Dakota – In commemoration of Veterans Day, on Saturday November 11 parking fees will be waived for veterans visiting Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

The National Park Service and parking concession operator Xanterra are pleased to offer free parking for all veterans on Veterans Day. “We are honored to offer our thanks to the brave men and women who have given so much for their country. We invite veterans to spend part of their special day at the Shrine of Democracy,” stated Superintendent Schreier. Throughout the summer season staff at Mount Rushmore National Memorial endeavor to commemorate and celebrate our veterans. On Veterans Day we are pleased to offer them this small token of thanks. Throughout the year active duty members of the military are offered free parking on a daily basis.
