CHEROKEE CAVERNS IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING

On Saturday, February 23 the Caverns experienced four feet of water through a major portion of its trails.

I have records going back to 1854, and this has never happened before.


At this time, we are not sure when we will be able to make repairs.  

We will be posting an update to this website, when we are ready to open again.
