Bring the Flashlight: 3 Tips for Visiting Mammoth Cave National Park – Lexington, KY

Caves are cool. You’ve probably seen them on TV hundreds of times. They’re dark, scary and contain crazy-looking creatures that you never thought existed.

But that’s just TV. Caves are fun and meant to be explored, especially when there are guided tours. And if you’re looking for a great cave to do some exploring, then there’s no park better than Mammoth Cave National Park.

Just one search on Google shows how amazing and glorious Mammoth Cave is. Just check out the website, and you’ll see this giant set of stairs that’ll take you down to the cave. It’s a must-see destination for anyone in the Lexington area.

I encourage everyone to go take a look at this cave. And if you’re also in the process of looking for a new car, your top-rated Lexington Nissan store will provide you with the vehicles that provide the best features and technology they can offer. There’s still a chance you can take advantage of a 2015 Nissan Sentra specials for $15,990, so maybe that’ll work out well for you!

Check out these tips for visiting Mammoth Cave National Park, but before you do, consider how much easier this popular Nissan will make your trip!

Bring Some Water

Mammoth Cave features over 400 miles worth of giant cave ready to be explored. It’s important to stay hydrated and replenished while you go on this great hike. Fortunately, the 2015 Nissan Sentra features two more-than-capable cupholders to carry large bottles of water, and there’s plenty of room to carry a gallon or two to refill said water bottles.

Try Camping

My form of camping is staying in a cabin during the winter with a roaring fireplace going on throughout the night. Mammoth Cave doesn’t have cabins, but there are 105 camp sites and are RV compatible. The cargo room in a 2015 Nissan Sentra is 15 cubic feet, providing plenty of space for all of your camping needs like tents and grills. There are cottages and a hotel at the site, however, if camping under the stars next to your Sentra isn’t your thing.

Go Fishing

Both the Green and Nolin Rivers provide ample opportunities to fish, and there are plenty of fish to try and angle. Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and, possibly, a first-aid kit in case you hook your finger instead of the fish. There is a slick storage area in the backseat of the 2015 Nissan Sentra that comes in handy when storing all loose, but essential, fishing items.


Glenn Nissan not only provides the best in stylish cars, but also the best in quality cars that can handle any camping trip or Kentucky adventure. This deal on a 2015 Nissan Sentra is great, but you may want to wait until the 2016 Nissan Sentra release date becomes official. Make sure to check out Glenn Nissan for any news on that front, and start preparing your next camping trip to Mammoth Cave National Park before the sun sets on summer!
