Visiting Mammoth Caves In Kentucky
Frozen Niagara is just one section of the Mammoth Caves, which is the longest cave structure in the world. The caves are a popular tourist attraction with approximately two million visitors per year. The Mammoth Cave National Park, in which the caves are situated, lies in central Kentucky and covers fifty two thousand, eight hundred and thirty acres. The park was established in 1941, around the Green River and the four hundred miles of passageways in the cave system. In 1981 the park was made a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Mammoth Caves are of course a central attraction of the area but for those visiting there is plenty to do above ground such as camping, hiking, and horseback riding. The Green River, and smaller Nolin River, cross the parkland and provide the opportunity to catch fish such as bluegill, catfish or perch. There are ferries to cross the Green River and canoeing is a popular pastime. The labyrinth of caves is no doubt the area's most popular attraction though and you can see why from the picture of Frozen Niagara at Mammoth Caves in Kentucky, on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
