Cave Exploring in Northern Kentucky

by myconductor

About 2 hours east from Cincinnati (in Northern Kentucky) is Carter Caves State Park. Although the cave system is not on the scale of Mammouth Cave National Park, it still has several cave systems readily available to explore. There are less tourists here, which provides a more one-on-one experience with your guides. At the time we went, you could also get a permit and do some cave exploring on your own. We did this in winter time when the bats were hibernating. Pretty cool experience to go into pitch black cave (only flashlights in hand) and come across thousand of bats hibernating in creavasses and ceilings. They have restricted this in recent years, due someone killing bats and spread of diseases. The state lodge is really nice place to stay, probably one of the better ones in Kentucky. There is also trail that loops the lodge and provides nice hikes and a very large natural bridge.
