Mammoth Cave Campground


Mammoth Cave National Park has three front-country campgrounds that offer common camping amenities and close proximity to the park’s visitor center area and cave tours. The park offers opportunities to find solitude in the park’s rugged hills and majestic woodlands.

The Mammoth Cave Campground is ideal for visitors seeking an authentic national park experience while still having easy access to amenities, cave tours, and other park activities. This developed campground is located within a quarter-mile from the visitor center and contains 111 campsites with a mixture of tent-only sites, group sites, tent or RV sites, and accessible sites.

The maximum length of 38 feet is allowed for RVs and trailers up to 26 feet are allowed. Each site has a fire ring with a grill and picnic table. Potable water is available at most times. Seasonal flooding may affect the water supply and access to the campground.
Campground amenities include laundry machines, shower facilities, and camping supplies within the park. Dead and downed firewood may be collected, however, there is a quarantine on wood brought in from other states to protect the park trees from non-native wood-boring pests. There is firewood for sale in the park store and businesses near the park entrance.

Rangers on duty in the campground kiosk are happy to provide information to make visitor stays a special adventure.
