Cave Lighting Project
We are undergoing a year-long lighting project in the cavern. Please be aware of caution tape along pathways inside the cave and use due care.
Environmental factors such as air quality, pests, disease, water quality and weather greatly affect the way in which the park is managed. All of these factors must be considered to ensure not only a safe visit to Carlsbad Caverns National Park but an enjoyable one as well.
