Definitely an incredible place to visit. We took two cave tours and both were interesting but where comfortable shoes, it is a lot of walking. The trails and hiking around the park are also worth exploring. It rained our entire visit thanks to Irma but...More

You could spend an entire week in Mammoth Cave Park and still not have time to take all the different cave tours and hiking paths. There is beauty everywhere and the guides on the cave tours are very knowledgeable about the area and it's history....More

The rangers and staff at Mammoth Caves are very friendly and welcoming. As with other reviews, it is definitely worth going online to book your tours. We wanted an 11am tour, but had to take a 9.15am one instead as the later was already booked...More

By 8 am (when visitor center opens) the line was 100+ long. Everything except self guided was sold out almost immediately. Book online and just pickup at will-call for sure unless you're only doing the self guided tour

We did the historic tour and the domes and dripstones tours in the same day with our six year old and he handled both well but he says historic was his favorite.
