Mammoth Cave National Park is in south central Kentucky, a part of the beautiful Green River valley. Mammoth Cave National Park is home to the most mammoth of all cave systems, an incredible 390 miles cavern system and that’s only the bits which have been explored so far. Once described as a “grand, gloomy, peculiar place” Mammoth Cave is well worth a visit, for those who like to explore underground and overground! It’s pretty awesome above ground too.
