The Overnight Adventure In Tennessee That Will Take You Back In Time
As a child, did you ever dream about exploring the great unknown under the ground? Did you think about crawling through caves and caverns, about experiencing stalagmites and stalactites, playing beneath the surface of the world as you know it? Here in Tennessee, we have an answer to those little girl and boy dreams, and they’re just as satisfying for adults – we promise.
You may know Tennessee as Ol' Rocky Top, but have you actually explored the innards of our great state? Tennessee's famed Cumberland Caverns offers a one-of-a-kind experience with its Caveman Campouts, an overnight experience that combines caving and camping in one electric evening.
It's the only way to truly appreciate the beauty of the underground caverns without interruption. Plus, it means you won't be fighting those pesky mosquitos or Mother Nature's rainy summer tendencies. Camping in the cave is offered year 'round, which makes for quite the experience with you and your friends.
You can choose from multiple experiences including the All Around the Mountain option, where you can take the scenic walking tour throughout the entirety of the caverns. You'll camp out in the 10-acre Room, which means that you'll have a historic experience in the heart of the state.
Breakfast is served in the morning no matter which experience you choose. The Parts Unknown Overnight is an extreme caving adventure that's meant for only two people, which involves ladders, ropes and older explorers. You have to be over sixteen, but this intense caving tour takes you all the way to the infamous Monument Pillar.
Overnight camping adventures definitely deserve a spot on your bucket list, but make sure that you book at least ten days in advance. This isn't a last minute decision, because the kind folks at Cumberland Caverns need to fully prepare for your fun experience.
Would you spend the night in a cave? Does it sound exciting?
