This Little Known Park In Kentucky Has Jaw Dropping Scenery

Perhaps two of the most well-known natural places in Kentucky are Mammoth Cave National Park and the Red River Gorge. Mammoth Cave is famous for being the longest cave system known in the world, and the Red River Gorge has hundreds of natural sandstone arches. While both of these places are amazing and definitely worth the hype, they can get quite crowded. If you’re looking to visit someplace that offers the same astonishing geological features and beautiful scenery as Mammoth Cave and the Red River Gorge, but doesn’t have the massive crowds, then check out Carter Caves State Resort Park.
