Attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists annually, Mammoth Cave and the land above it was designated a National Park by the federal government in 1941. It is the longest known cave system in the world with over 350 miles of passageways and underground river systems. In 1981, the area became a World Heritage Site and was designated an International Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations in 1990 because of its unique environment and ecology. In many ways, Mammoth Cave National Park is really two parks in one with the serenity and solitude of the caves below ground and the rugged beauty of over 80 square miles of forests, wildlife, rivers, and trails above. Check with our Reservation Desk for information on cave tours and schedules along with information on “surface” recreational and educational programs offered by the U.S. Park Service. It’s your tax dollars at work! Take advantage of them! For tour information call 1-800-967-2283

A family friendly themed campground


June 6, 2011

This campground historically has been a great first time camping event for young children, with non-stop activities, a relic waterslide, and old-thyme miniature golf course. Our children and now grandchildren have looked forward to their yearly sojourn; unfortunately, tough economic times and an amusement park at the next exit have largely turned the Cave City area into a ghost town, with most attractions and shops boarded up.

Worse yet is the parks policy of charging the locals a day fee to utilize an already woefully undersized pool and slide area; with no obvious limits in numbers, campers are often crowded out of the amenities on busy summer weekends despite paying a hefty camping fee that “includes” the price of all activities. Thankfully, the all inclusive price does not include the rental golf carts that zoom about 24 hours a day manned by semi-sober adults, any more of those and the place would be down right dangerous.
