Time to celebrate the parks!

Every April, during the presidentially proclaimed National Park Week, the National Park Service celebrates America's treasures. National Park Week is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out through volunteering, and find your park.

Come see what special events Mammoth Cave National Park has planned in addition to our cave tours and ranger led programs.

  • Free Self-Guided Cave Tour - April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    • The free Discovery tour is self-guided experience through some of the cave’s largest passageways. Visitors will explore the history and geologic origins of the Mammoth Cave system. The tour begins at the Historic Entrance of Mammoth Cave. The Discovery tour route is approximately ¾-mile long and requires participants to walk down and up a steep hill as well as navigate 160 steps.
