Discover Cathedral Caverns State Park, AL


Cathedral Caverns State Park is a state park located in Kennamer Cove in Marshall County, Alabama. The county is in the northeastern corner of the state. Cathedral Caverns is a series of karst caves, which are caves formed in soluble rock such as limestone.

The caverns had been occupied by Native Americans for hundreds of years. Archaeological records indicate Native Americans lived near the caves as recently as the 19th century. They were perhaps inhabiting parts of the caverns as long ago as 7000 BCE. One cavern was more recently settled by the Kennamer family. After the Kennamer farmhouse was burned by US soldiers, the family lived in the cave. The state of Alabama bought the caverns in 1987 and opened them to the public in 2000.

Alabama campers can travel from Cathedral Caverns State Park to Huntsville in about thirty minutes. Chattanooga, Tennessee is less than 90 minutes away, and Rome, Georgia is less than two hours away. The caverns could be the launching point for an exploration of the southeast while you are out on an adventure with the family exploring the great unknown.

Getting Outdoors

Outdoors enthusiasts who book an RV in Marshall County, are able to explore Cathedral Caverns on their own or with a guide. Guided tours are offered throughout the year. Cave tours are popular throughout the year because the cave system stays about 60 degrees Fahrenheit all year. School classes, church groups, and scout troops are common visitors here. Guided tours are popular because many of the different stalagmites, stalactites, and rock fixtures are named.

Hikers can drive their RV right up to intersecting trailheads around the caverns. The park features over five miles of hiking trails. The trails are all mapped and marked for easy navigation.

Gem enthusiasts can also mine gems at the caverns. Buckets are filled from the caverns, and you can sift through them using custom-made water flumes. The buckets can contain dirt and gems from the caves, or they can contain shells and gems from the ocean.
