Mammoth Cave National Park Temporarily Bans fires, Smoking

Bowling Green Daily News - KY
Dry conditions have caused Mammoth Cave National Park to ban campfires temporarily in backcountry areas of the park, and smoking on all park trails.

The only campfires allowed at the park will be in the frontcountry area in metal rings constructed by the National Park Service, said Park Superintendent Patrick Reed.

The rings can be found at the Mammoth Cave Campground, Houchins Ferry Campground, Maple Springs Group Campground, Dennison Ferry Day Use Area and the picnic area near the visitor center. Even fires within the fire rings must be low intensity, he said. The fires must also be attended at all times.
