Four thousand years ago, Mammoth Cave was discovered by man for the very first time. It was quite a discovery, but for thousands of years afterward, it was left untouched. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that people began to take interest in it once again.
Mammoth Cave National Park, established in 1941, is known for the world’s longest cave system--400 miles of it that has been explored so far. 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 - 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 go RV camping here.
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. This 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.
