Russell Cave is an archaeological site with one of the most complete records of prehistoric cultures in the Southeast. Thousands of years ago a portion of Russell Cave's entrance collapsed, creating a shelter that, for more than 10,000 years, was home to prehistoric peoples. Today it provides clues to the daily lifeways of early North American inhabitants dating from 10,000 B.C. to 1650 A.D.

Facinating! So cool. If even if you don't care much about prehistory, the cave itself is beautiful and the museum is short and sweet. Rangers very friendly and helpful. A great quick trip not far off the main highway. If you are an archaeologist this is one of those places that you just HAVE to visit at some point in your life. Love

It's a pretty cool site. However you're only allowed in the mouth of the cave. There is also a cool nature trail to hike through the woods. Bring your own snacks though as they only have a drink vending machine onsite. Also ZERO cell signal are the site but it picks up about 100 feet from the visiter center.

They always have some amazing events for children and adults. Not only that they are free to the public. We go every year to the Slithery Sliders. We will now be adding Birds of Prey to our annual events!

Small national park in a rural setting. The rangers were so nice and helpful. Great stop.
