Alerts & Conditions
Footwear in the CavernFor safety, closed-toe shoes with good traction are recommended. Flip flops, sandals, and some walking shoes have little or no traction and increase the possibility of slips, trips, and falls. Watch your step and use the handrails when necessary.
Items Worn or Used in Other Caves Not AllowedA disease know as White-nose Syndrome is killing bats in North America. To prevent it from spreading to our bats, do not wear shoes, clothing, or bring any gear into any cave at Carlsbad Caverns National Park that were in another cave.
Unmanned Aircraft (Drones) Are ProhibitedThe use of unmanned aircraft, also known as drones, is prohibited within Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
