Wild Caving and Glamping- A Match Made in Caveman Heaven

The best of both worlds- Glamping in a Cave

Cumberland Caverns has opened it’s first ever Glamping Campsite (in the artist green room) and it is now available to add on to your overnight adventure for only $50! You and up to three family members or friends can share the private enclosed space which features 2 futons, tables, chairs, and additional lighting. Have more people in your group? No worries! Call 931-668-4396 and ask to speak with reservations for more details.

You will spend the night in comfort in the same room musicians use before performing on the world-famous Volcano Room stage, 333′ below the surface. This private space is perfect for families and close friends who want adventure with a little more comfort than camping.

This exclusive site is available on a first-come, first serve basis.
