Report: Mount Rushmore Has Room For Improvement

Report: Mount Rushmore Has Room For Improvement
RAPID CITY, SD -

An independent report has concluded that although Mount Rushmore National Memorial is the largest tourism draw to the Black Hills, it has some room for improvement.

The cost of parking and the abundance of items manufactured in China that are sold in the gift shop were among the issues raised by visitors.

The study was conducted by the National Park Service Visitor Services Project of the University of Idaho. Nearly 1,300 questionnaires were given to visitors in June 2013 and 782 of them returned them.

The report shows people from 49 states, including South Dakota, visited the memorial during the survey period. It also states that the gift shop is popular, but overcrowding is an issue.

The report can be found at http://psu.uidaho.edu.
