    Natural attractions in Mammoth Cave

    Packed with natural attractions and thrilling adventures, Mammoth Cave offers a family-friendly getaway in south-central Kentucky, where a national park holds tons of trails and underground passageways to discover. Days here are spent floating along the winding Green River in canoes and kayaks, spotting the geese and ducks swimming alongside and popping into small towns to explore themed museums and grab lunch served up Southern-style. Once you've picked out your ideal Mammoth Cave vacation rental, perhaps in a cozy cabin or with a water view, it's off for tours of incredible cave systems and horseback riding excursions along wooded pathways.

    Going underground in Mammoth Cave

    Exploring the underground passageways is a must during a stay in this area, and Mammoth Cave National Park offers a number of guided tours to show you some of the best geological features. From easy, family-friendly walks and accessible outings of less than a mile into large, open cave rooms, to more physically-challenging treks to see dripstone formations and underground hills and canyons, excursions are available for everyone, including those who want a hardcore caving experience full of crawling and climbing. Above ground, join park rangers for kid-friendly nature activities and hikes to local springs and ponds, with talks about the landscape along the way.

    Animal adventures in Mammoth Cave

    Though there are seemingly-endless outdoor activities in the parklands here, save some time for family-friendly attractions in the small towns that surround Mammoth Cave, too. These include zoos, museums and thrilling adventure parks, with ziplines, high-flying swings and horseback-riding tours. In nearby Horse Cave, you'll want to pay a visit to the Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo, an Australian-themed attraction where you can see kookaburras, dingoes, emus and kangaroos, alongside American species like bison, alligators and barred owls. The town also has a cave museum, with exhibits about geology, archeology and the wildlife you can find underground.

    Year-round fun in Mammoth Cave

    This part of Kentucky gets a taste of all 4 seasons, with mild winters that produce occasional snow, and summers that heat up into the 80s and 90s. The caves, however, stay quite consistent, with temperatures in the mid-50s, meaning underground adventures can take place year-round, though the park's hours vary by season. Spring and fall are a pleasant time to enjoy all the other outdoor activities around here, with daytime highs comfortable enough for hiking and boat rides on the river and nights that cool off enough to enjoy cozy evenings indoors at your Mammoth Cave vacation rental.

    Following the trails in Mammoth Cave

    Though the extensive underground system of caverns and grottos is the big draw to Mammoth Cave, the national park also boasts tons of paths to explore. Grab a canoe or kayak from local venders to row down the Green River, which runs through the park, looking for some of the resident bird life and cute land critters along the way. There are plenty of land trails here as well, where you can hike or bike alongside creeks and ponds. With so many active adventures available, it's easy to spend a whole day in the park before heading back to your Mammoth Cave vacation rental to relax.
