RV Vacation Idea: Mammoth Cave National Park
Officially dedicated as a national park on July 1, 1941, Mammoth Cave National Park covers more than 52,000 acres and has the unique distinction of having the longest cave system in the world with over 367 miles of it having been explored. Imagine a cave so long, that if the second and third longest caves in the world were joined together, Mammoth would still be the planet's longest cave and have nearly 100 miles left over! You'll want to learn about the mystery of Mammoth Cave. Take one or several of the park's cave tours.
In addition, there are many more things to do and see. You can canoe, kayak, enjoy a campfire program, bike, hike, and more! You'll want to see remnants from Indian miners from more than two thousand years ago! Gourds, torches, and slippers are some of the remnants that remain perfectly preserved today.
Camping is allowed in the park. Check out this page to get information on campsites and other useful information.
Don't wait to make plans for a trip to this place that early guide Stephen Bishop called a 'grand, gloomy and peculiar' place.
