The National Park Service (NPS) is excited to share that Camp Nelson National Monument's Visitor Center and Museum will be open 7-days a week starting on Memorial Day (May 30, 2022) through Labor Day (September 5, 2022).

The park is offering ranger-guided tours of the park's grounds this summer on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays! The tours consist of 45-minute programs that lead visitors on an exploration of the site's rich and complex natural and cultural landscape.
Four tours will be offered each day at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm.

If you plan to visit during the week, please contact park staff to see if tours are available at or by phone: 859-881-5716.

The tours are free and open to the public. Participants are advised to wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes, sun block, and bring water. There is a refillable water station in the park's visitor center.
