This was one of the neatest places we went. I think it was $12 a person or $25 a carload to get in. It is totally funded by donations and entrance fees. There is a REALLY nice Native American art gallery, museum and movie that explains what is is all about. There is also a gift shop, ice cream place and restaurant. The nightly laser light show was one of our kids favorite things.

I agree. We visited the area this summer with the grand kids. They also enjoyed this. No much has happened to the monument in 25 or so years since we took our kids there. Back then there was nothing but the monument. They have created quite a revenue generating engine with all the facilities. Based on the business they have going, I'm not sure they are in any hurry to finish the monument.

I was at Crazy Horse about 2 weeks ago. I was extremely dissapointed in that I was charged to get in and then there was an additional charge to go down to the monument. The vistor center, museum and gift shop are rather elaborate. Guess THAT is where the money is going rather than working on the monument.

We thought that Crazy Horse was kind of a ripoff. Our visit to Mt.Rushmore was first class, and wow, when we first saw it, all we could say was WOW!

We spent three months working at Custer SP this spring and part of the orientation was trips to the major attractions in the area. We were able to get to go out on the arm of Crazy Horse and view the head from up close as well as the surrounding area.
Korzcak (sp?) widow, Ruth, is still active in running the place, but there is very little activity going on as far as finishing the monument. This place makes a mint in admissions to the site, the RV park they own just down the road toward Custer and the restaurants onsite and in the museum complex. Not to mention all the donations.
I will try to get a photo from the arm posted if I can figure out how.

To post a photo it first must be on the internet somewhere....You then simply cut and paste the picture URL or address like this...

We stayed at Custer's Gulch when we were in the area...LOVED the helicopter tour too!

Same observation after nearly 40 years. I don't know anything their timetable, but viewing the progress here, I am disappointed to see that little apparently has been done since I was last there in 1968.. I traveled out west one summer after graduation while awaiting entry into Uncle Sam's service. I sure would have guessed it would have been much more completed, especially having just seen Stone Mountain in Georgia. Perhaps the difference is "private vs public funding".
