Due to Covid19, there are some changes this summer for visiting the park and for touring the cave. We want to protect all who visit and all the park staff this summer.
Park facilities will open as of June 1st. Due to Covid19 restrictions there will be one cave tour available, the "Extended Historic Tour". Here is a video regarding changes at the park this summer. Please click on the link for details on our cave tour and additional park information. www.nps.gov/maca/planyourvisit/summer-schedule-2020.htm

Thank you for at least managing to offer one cave tour. I'm glad I got to see Frozen Niagra with my son back in September before everything changed. It's starting to feel like I'll never get more chances to see or do anything with him that isn't online.

Do NPS annual passes work here?

The cave tour reservations don’t seem to be open yet. Maybe soon?

Are there any restrictions on backcountry permits for camping along the Green?

Great job friends!

Bummer that we’ll miss the tours we really wanted to do.

Looking forward to seeing you in August

Will the Green River Ferry be running this summer?

Very good information.

Crawling around under the bed? Mistaking birds for bats? Talking to stuffed animals? The Park Rangers at Mammoth Cave National Park sure miss the cave! We're excited to have you back here with us again soon, but in the meantime, here's our attempt at adapting to the surface..

A version of this video with a descriptive audio track is available. To access this version, please follow the link in the description of the video shared below, or visit the Mammoth Cave National Park YouTube channel and select the video, "Cavers Adapting to the Surface with Descriptive Audio". Both videos have closed captions available.

That was awesome! 🦇 Honestly, it’s 100% valid. Doing bat counts underground all winter and now back doing bat counts late at night at backcountry cave entrances, it feels unnatural to be out in the daylight. I miss the sight and sounds of visitors!

The only thing bad about this video is that we didn’t think of it first! Mammoth Cave for the win!!!!! Don’t drink anything while watching this video it will come back out your nose!!!!!!!!😂😝😍😂😝 Ashley Vedvig Tate Phillip

I am so looking forward to be able to visit the cave June 10th when I'll be in Bowling Green a couple of days earlier! I'll keep looking at the NPS website for updates!

What is the hold up of the cave being opened?

Hello!

I know you may think I look abandoned or lost but my mother knows exactly where I am! I am sleeping so mom can eat to feed me later. She is not too far away and if I need her all I must do is call and she will come running! I do ask that you keep your distance and please don't pet or feed me. I do not care if you take pictures but remember to keep your distance. The thumb rule is best, if you can’t cover wildlife with your thumb while observing, you're too close!

Sincerely, your friend the fawn

What do Mammoth Cave National Park, Big Bend National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Olympic National Park all have in common?

They’re all International Biosphere Reserves!

What is an International Biosphere Reserve? International Biosphere Reserves are sites that are not only incredibly biodiverse, but also seek to find balance between people and nature and serve as learning places for sustainable development.

Mammoth Cave was designated as a UNESCO International Biosphere Reserve in 1990 and shares this designation with nearly 700 other sites all around the world – including many other National Park sites!

This year for Kids to Parks Day, we’re flipping things around and instead bringing the parks to you! There are many ways to celebrate and learn about national parks from home!
