Mammoth Cave, Kentucky—Mammoth Cave National Park will be closing at 4:00pm Central Time on Friday, February 16, in preparation for the arrival of the second significant winter event of the week. Green River Ferry will cease operations Friday evening at 5:30pm.

The park provisionally plans to open the Visitor Center at 10:00am Saturday, with the first tour departing at 11:00am. This schedule may be altered, as the storm is projected to bring snow, followed by sleet and freezing rain, resulting in ice accumulations making hazardous travel conditions throughout the region.  In the early morning Saturday park staff will evaluate the safety and accessibility of park roads and facilities prior to opening.
