Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!


We are an older couple looking to work at Mt Rushmore with Xanterra for the summer.  Not seeing too many jobs posted. We would have to live in the dorms.  Anybody experienced that?  Anybody know the working conditions etc.

A few years back we worked for DNC at Yellowstone and loved it.

I have heard that the dorms at Mt Rushmore are the best in any of the National Parks as well as best in all seasonal jobs but I am not sure how true that is. I never worked at Mt Rushmore but I did work at Custer State Park Resort which is pretty close and that place is pretty cool. Good luck

The dorms are top notch.  Two to a room, private bathroom. The management are great and are pretty fair to their employees. You should seriously consider working there for the season.

I worked at Mt Rushmore for 4 months last year. I have a blog on here about

I don't know but you could try applying with forever resorts, they are a concessionaire that has a property near Mt. Rushmore...worked for them at the Grand Canyon North Rim this past summer.

Actually the best housing that I had was @ the remote East end of GCSR (GRAND CANYON SOUTH RIM) near the Desert View Watchtower. DNC has that location now. But you get your own bedroom/bathroom in a 2 bedroom apt. You share the kitchen, living room and washer & dryer with 1 other person.
