Mammoth Cave National Park

Superintendent Name: 
Patrick H. Reed
Mammoth Cave National Park was established to preserve its remarkable cave system (the longest recorded cave system in the world), the scenic valleys of the Green and Nolin rivers, and a section of south central Kentucky. A very popular destination for families and day-trippers, the land surrounding the caves affords visitors great fishing and day hiking in addition to all that the underground world has to offer.
