Yes, that was a time ago when we still were tent camping. The Mammoth Cave National Park campground is close, but they don't have electric service. And have pay showers....

Besides what PanJH said about shoes, also, no purses, backpacks, camera bags (you can take a camera, just not the bag to put it in) or fanny packs allowed in the Cave either.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Everyone has been very helpful, Thank you all for your responses. I think that Cave Country CG would be the best fit for us for our one short night.

Sounds like if you go to Jellystone you'll never make it to the cave

Once we were supposed to go to the Spencer shop train museum in Spencer, NC, and we stayed at Dan Nicholas park in Salisbury, NC. The kids had so much to do there that we never did make it to Spencer shop!

We went through Mammoth with our son who was 5 at the time, he enjoyed it, though I can't remember exactly which tour we went on.

Have fun at Mammoth!

Luv2go,,, you need to go back and get him through the train shop. I took my grandson there (salisbury, NC) and he was thrilled. Lots of walking but well worth it. The even had "Thomas" on display.

Tom,

You gotta get your grandson on the Trog Tour which is only open to 8-12 year old kids. There are two guides on the trip and they gear the kids up with a helmet and a head lamp. Let the boy do some REAL caving while you take the walking tour.

Description: This tour offers an off-trail adventure for children ages 8–12. Begin with a short hike through the forest down to the Historic Entrance of Mammoth Cave and see how the surface and subsurface are connected. Put on your hard hat and headlamp as you travel off-trail and learn how early visitors ventured through the cave as well as how cavers safely explore today. Unlock the secrets of how the animals of Mammoth Cave survive in this dark underground world. Children will get a first hand experience of “discovering” a new world as they hike, crawl and belly slide through rarely visited sections of Mammoth Cave.

My son did the tour a few years ago and still talks about it. Make your reservations online and early as only 12 kids go on each tour and there is only one per day.

That ( Trog tour) is like the kids version of the adult's Wild Cave Tour. When we go back I'll do the Wild Cave Tour again. We were there about 16 years ago and spent a whole week doing a tour every day. Back then it was Ticket Master who ran the reservation for the tour tickets. I remember some days some of the tours were sold out so we would buy tickets a few days out to go on the tour we wanted......I think we went in the off season like April, so the summer can be a whole new animal.......I would check ahead to reserve a spot on the tours you want.........

Singing Hills CG

If your only staying one or two nights, I'd recommend Singing Hills RV Park in Cave City. Small CG but very nice, clean, pool, fish pond and about two miles from Mammoth Cave. Stayed here little over a year ago and would stay again if in the area.
