These 7 Caves In Tennessee Are The Perfect Spots To Cool Down This Season

Tennessee is famous for its Ol’ Rocky Top, known for the thick layer of limestone bedrock that runs beneath the majority of the state. It can be a real headache for farmers and folks looking to build on the land, but for spelunkers, it’s an absolute dream! Throughout the state, there are multiple parks and private attractions that offer spelunking and cave hiking experiences great for folks of all ages. We’ve compiled some of the best below and would encourage you to visit as many as you can. There’s nothing like Tennessee aboveground, and we have a feeling you’re going to love what’s underground as well!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

These caves remain some of the best to visit in Tennessee, and we have a feeling at least one or two of them will sate your need for adventure.

If you’re looking for more outdoor fun, Crazy Horse Outdoor Recreation Park is a dream!
