The level of Green River has dropped to the point that it is no longer safe to operate the ferries in Mammoth Cave National Park. Green River Ferry closed Wednesday morning; Houchins Ferry will close at the end shift Wednesday (6:00 p.m.).

On Wedensday morning, the river level measured five inches below the gage at Green River Ferry.

The ferries will reopen as soon as the river rises enough for safe operation to resume. Current ferry information is available at 270.758.2166.
