Campgrounds

There are few better ways to discover the pleasures and curiosities of the sunlit side of Mammoth Cave National Park than to camp among the trees or by the waters. The park offers camping in three developed campgrounds and in more than a dozen primitive sites in the backcountry and along the Green and Nolin Rivers. Use the links to find out about the different campgrounds and choose the one that's best for you. For some of our campsites, you can even reserve your campsite online.

Also be sure to check out the Campground Regulations.

FIREWOOD QUARANTINE: Firewood from a number of states is quarantined due to an insect infestation by one or more insect pests (e.g. the Emerald Ash Borer) that is devastating certain tree species. To prevent infestation of trees in the park, transport of firewood into the park is prohibited. You may pick up any dead or downed wood inside the park or purchase wood from the Caver's Camp Store located near the park Visitor Center. Store hours vary with season; check bulletin board at kiosk for current hours. Please help protect our forests from these destructive pests and do not bring firewood into the Park.
