5 reasons to visit Mammoth Cave National Park

by Jim Mosley
Mammoth Cave National Park

Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave National Park is the longest cave system in the world. Here’s five reasons to go:

• Beat the heat: Inside, the caves are always about 54 degrees.

• Lots above ground: Hiking, biking, boating – you don’t have to enter the caves to have fun.

• It’s free to enter the park. (Some busier national parks cost $30.) Campsites start at $20 per night, and less if you’re a senior.

• Renovated lodge and restaurant: If camping isn’t your thing, the renovated lodge, restaurant and shops offer a more upscale experience.

• Wildlife: The park is home to 70 threatened or endangered species.
