Here at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave, we have been hard at work updating and enhancing all of our cleanings and sanitizing procedures, adjusting our recreation activities to comply with social distancing, and researching the best practices to take care of guests in this new operating environment. Additionally, our recreation team has developed a number of new activities which can be done while maintaining social distancing. To prepare yourself for some of those activities, please download Zoom and the CampersApp mobile app in the App Store or Google Play store before arriving. Both products are free.
