All visitor services, including cave tours, visitor center operations, and the Green River Ferry will reopen at Mammoth Cave National Park on Tuesday, March 7. The Mammoth Cave Campground is open, but there will be no power at the comfort stations. Flint Ridge, Joppa Ridge, North Houchins, Ugly Creek, and Dennison Ferry Road remain closed.

Park trails are open but there may be some trees across the trails that have not been cleared. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders should use caution when in the park.

Park maintenance crews have worked to clear between 300-400 trees across roadways and visitor areas like the Mammoth Cave Campground since Friday, March 3 when a severe wind event hit the region. The park has been without power and internet since that time and suspended cave tour operations until it could be restored.
