Parking

Mount Rushmore National Memorial Parking Facility

Parking is readily available in the memorial's parking facility, operated under a concession contract between the National Park Service and Xanterra Travel Collection. Since no federal funding was used to construct the parking facility, a parking fee has been authorized to offset the costs associated with the operation and maintenance of the parking facility. A parking permit entitles a non-commercial vehicle unlimited entry to the memorial for one year from the date of purchase.
