The weekend starts with fellowship around the campfire on Friday evening. There is even live music at some campsites!
We will have afternoon Sabbath services in the conference room of the Mammoth Cave Hotel near the campsites. That evening, we will have a hot dog dinner (suggested donation $5/person, $20/family) and more fellowship activities—please bring a board game or playing cards! 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 recreation.gov.
We plan to reserve group campsites. Please RSVP by Tuesday, April 7 so we know how many to reserve. However, there will be ample campsites available for same day drive-ups. The bathrooms have electricity, and there is a bathhouse for showers (a “pay shower,” so bring quarters). You can purchase firewood from the store at the entrance to the campground (we are not allowed to bring in firewood). The Mammoth Cave campground keeps several campsites reserved for “same day/first come first served,” so do not be discouraged if you have tried calling to reserve a campsite. There will be plenty of sites available for camping. Each campsite has a fire pit ring and picnic table. Call 877-444-6777 or visit the website www.nps.gov for more information on Mammoth Cave and area attractions. You can also contact Sherie Spalding with any other questions.
In addition to the campgrounds, there are hotel rooms at Mammoth Cave Park and cabins that can be rented, plus hotels outside the park in the Cave City area.
There are hiking paths throughout the park. A restaurant, cafe and ice cream parlor are on the premises of Mammoth Cave, as well as several area restaurants outside of the park.
Contact Sherie Spalding with any questions at 615-512-5533 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Come for the whole weekend or any part to enjoy the fellowship!
