Senior Passes are not available at Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Please ask about purchasing a Senior Pass at other Black Hills area national park sites. A list of sites that sell Senior Passes is available.

The Senior Pass can be used at sites managed by the National Park Service, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the United States Forest Service, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Funds from passes are used to enhance the visitor experience and support priority projects and programs.

As of August 28, 2017, a lifetime Senior Pass costs $80. An annual Senior Pass is also available for $20. Seniors who purchase annual Senior Passes for four years can trade them in for a lifetime Senior Pass at no additional charge.

The Senior Pass covers all entrance fees and standard amenity (day use) fees and may provide senior discounts for things such as tours or campsites. The pass also waives the entrance fee for travelling companions. At per-vehicle fee sites, the pass admits the pass holder and all passengers in a noncommercial vehicle. At a per-person fee site, the pass admits the pass holder and three other adults. Children under 16 are always admitted free.

The Senior Pass does not cover parking or other concession fees.
