Houchins Ferry opens March 1; Group Campground remains closed for storm clean up


(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – February 23, 2009)  Houchins Ferry will open for the season Sunday, March 1.  The Maple Springs Group Campground, which would normally open in March, remains closed due to hazardous fallen trees and damage from the January 27 ice storm.


“We plan to have Houchins Ferry Road cleared and open by March 1, so that means Houchins Ferry can open on schedule for the season,” said Superintendent Patrick Reed.  “Maple Springs campground was hit hard by the storm.  It will be some time before we can declare it safe for campers. ”


Houchins Ferry, near Brownsville, is a car ferry across Green River.  It operates daily from 10:15 a.m. to 6 p.m., March through November.
