Mammoth Cave National Park is home to 52,830 acres. It is most famous for being home to the longest cave system in the world, but what happens above ground is pretty magnificent as well. With nearly 84 miles of trail throughout the park, there is plenty of space to roam.
To find a spot just right for you start by consulting the backcountry trail mileage chart listed under the “Backcountry Trails List.”
And be sure you combine it with a check of the Mammoth Cave backcountry and riverside camping information page on the National Park Service website.
As you can see from these two sources, most backcountry campsites require adding a few trail lengths together to get an accurate calculation of just how many miles you’ll be hiking in and out.
