Camping Weekend—Mammoth Cave National Park

April 11, 2024 - 12:00am EDT to April 14, 2024 - 11:55pm EDT

The Bowling Green, Kentucky, congregation is excited to announce that the annual camping weekend at Mammoth Cave will be held from April 11-14. 

The weekend starts with fellowship around the campfire on Friday evening. There is even live music at some campsites! 

We will have campfire-side Sabbath services at 2 p.m. (central time). Dress for services this day will be camp casual, modest clothing. There are several cave tours you can reserve to do on your own or with others. To reserve other tours, call (877) 444-6777 or visit http://recreation.gov/.  

Bring your bikes—there are great riding areas for kids and adults.

On Saturday night we will have a huge potluck, if you want to participate. Hotdogs, sides, dessert and drinks will be shared. 

Bathrooms do have electricity. The bathhouse is a "pay shower," so bring quarters and flip flops! You will need to purchase firewood from the store at the entrance to the campground (we are not allowed to bring in firewood from outside the park). 

The Mammoth Cave campgrounds keeps several campsites reserved for "same day/first come, first served"—so do not be discouraged if you are unable to reserve a campsite. There will be plenty of sites available for camping.  Each camp site has a fire pit ring and picnic table.

We have some families coming on Thursday, and some not able to arrive until Friday. Come for all or part of the fun! 

Individual campsites are $25 per night. We have group sites reserved at $40 per night which will be divided by the number of families. We have three group sites reserved, so please let Sherie know if you want a spot saved for your family.


If you have any questions call or text Sherie at (615) 512-5533.
