At Maple Springs, visitors can enjoy the serenity of the campground and surrounding backcountry trails, or spend their days exploring Mammoth Cave, the world's longest recorded cave system. A whopping 390 miles of caverns have been recorded, and there's still more to discover. Campers can explore up to ten miles of the caverns through a variety of tours available through the visitor center. Mammoth Cave is named for its grand size and scale. Visit the Rotunda for an idea of just how large this underground world is. The World Heritage Site was explored by Native Americans more than 2,000 years ago, and Europeans discovered its existence at the turn of the 19th century.
