This was my first trip back since I was a child (25+ years ago) and there have been many great improvements. The walkway right under the monument is very cool.

Very cold, but lovely in the snow. The city of Keystone shuts down for the wintertime, so be prepared to either eat and stay in Rapid City, or get a bite to eat at Mount Rushmore.. I liked it more last summer when I went.

You can start to see George Washington as you approach the location. Look to your left through the trees. I loved everything about this National Monument location and grounds. The walkway of flags, the museum and the grounds surrounding the actual monument. You can walk...More

I visited Mount Rushmore National Memorial in November. The weather was great. When we were walking up the pathway I was blown away. Another place off my bucket list.

I have always wanted to see Mount Rushmore, got to admit, while it is impressive, it looked smaller than i imagined. The avenue of flags as you walk towards the monument is pretty impressive also, so are the exhibits of the monuments construction.

Seeing this in person was surreal. Really felt like a Hitch cock movie wondering around these magnificent stone carved heads in twilight.

Never thought I would ever get to see Mount Rushmore in my lifetime. On a cloudless, August day, I got to stare in awe and amazement at four men who have shaped our American history. Never pass up the opportunity to see Mount Rushmore.

We visited during the shutdown and we were interviewed by a TV reporter. The sculpture is worth the detour and we benefited by having the place mostly to ourselves. The gift shop is comprehensive. The engineering is spectacular.

This was one of the most awesome, breathtaking, trips we have ever made. The views were spectacular, the monument was awesome, and the unbelievable amount of "other" things to do made the trip will worth the money and time. I would highly recommend a tour...More

I would research ahead of your visit to see if there are any presentations that you would like to see, or to check out the museum hours. There is an amphitheater below the main viewing area where these are held, and also a... More

Sorry, but I have no idea. I'd check on the various websites about RV access to the specific areas you want to see because some of the areas are a bit tight especially if you're planning on going through some of the tunnels.

We drove interstate 90 through South Dakota to mt rushmore this summer and were amazed at all the signs to expect road closures in winter. I imagine that the same would be true in Wyoming.
