  • Fun and awesome...had a lot of laughs going through this. Just watch your step and make sure you listen to the rangers guidance.  more »
  • This is a challenging section of the cave where you have to squeeze through a winding trench of rock. The ceiling is also low in spots. It was very exciting.  more »
  • One of the features of the trip through Mammoth cave is a winding, twisting part that requires you to travel sideways and can be a little slippy so be very careful.  more »

Where to stay in Mammoth Cave National Park

You have a couple of options for spending the night in Mammoth Caves National Park. First, you may opt to camp at one of the three campgrounds or about a dozen backcountry sites. The campgrounds are developed, providing toilets, grills, and drinking water. The second option involves bedding down at one of the two motels by the cave's entrance. If you prefer to have restaurants and various services close by, choose one of the economy motels in the aptly named Cave City just east of the park.
