Description:
Mt. Rushmore is Open
                      All Year.
Open All Year

The two caves
operated by the
National Park
Service -- Wind
Cave and Jewel
Cave -- are open all year. The others are seasonal.
    The Black Hills are home to literally hundreds of caves of which seven natural caves are open for tours. Each of the caves listed here has it's own page. You can follow links by clicking on the blue type.
    We also list three caves that are no longer open to the public. We've done this because sometimes you might see something on the Internet referencing the closed caves as still active.  Sadly, for those who enjoy caves, all three have closed since 2007.
