Known as longest cave system in the world, Mammoth Cave National Park is an exceptionally unique national park that is a great destination for RV lovers. Located in Edmonson, Hart, and Barren counties within the state of Kentucky, the caves were first discovered four thousand years ago. It was quite a discovery, but for thousands of years afterward, the caves were left untouched. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that people began to take interest in them once again.
Mammoth Cave National Park was officially established in 1941 and the caves are the biggest attraction, but that’s not all you’ll find here. This park also features the Green River Valley and beautiful rolling country hills. There are also two rivers (the Green River and Nolan River) that will provide you with excellent opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and much more. With everything that nature has to offer, you can be sure that you’ll make stunning new discoveries when you visit the park.
The weather in Kentucky and within the park tends to be moderate. Summers are pretty warm, winters are fairly cool, and about 46 inches of rain is expected each year. Most of this rain falls during the springtime. If you go in the summer, be prepared for weather that’s brought up by the Gulf of Mexico. No matter what time of the year you wish to visit this park, you can be guaranteed that it’ll be open.
Whether this is your first time in an RV or you are a very experienced camper, you will be very happy with the campgrounds at Mammoth Cave National Park. There are two RV friendly campgrounds that feature primitive sites large enough to cater for RVs up to 40 feet in length. The park stays open year-round, with the exception of Christmas Day. Anytime is a good time to bring your RV to Mammoth Cave National Park, so stop thinking about it and do it!
