Last Known StatusOpen

This large off-road park offers something for all skill levels and 4x4 vehicle types. The terrain consists of tight and narrow ATV trails, steep and chunky hill climbs to wide and hard packed Jeep roads. The main attraction is a large sand cave that is wide enough for most vehicles to drive through.

Large groups and clubs are welcomed and primitive camping is permitted. There are no electric or water hookups but generators are allowed. The park office sells bagged ice and t-shirts. Amenities include restroom and shower facilities and a food truck that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Other nearby attractions include the world's longest known cave system at nearby Mammoth Cave National Park.

The large sand cave is a must see when you visit this off-road park. The cave is wide enough for ATVs and UTVs to drive right in.

The view looking out from the sand cave while sitting on an ATV is a little spooky.

The cave entrance is labled so you can't miss it.
