Both the Green River and the Nolin River are contained entirely within the boundary of Mammoth Cave National Park.  There are several Corp of Engineer campgrounds on Nolin Lake which lies along the northern border of the National Park - Dog Creek, Moutardier, and Wax COE Campgrounds.  Also Nolin Lake State Park.  All campgrounds have scenic lakeside camp sites with elec/water hookups for RV'ers.  Mammoth Cave NP has a campground but no elec hookups for RV's and likely will be crowded by NP visitors.  Camping along Nolin Lake provides another paddling opportunity for early morning or evening paddles if interested. Fishing is said to be very good. Our primary campground will be Moutardier.  Plan is to paddle Green River on Saturday and Nolin on Sunday.  Tour Mammoth Cave on Monday. Make camping reservations early at ReserveAmerica.com.  This is popular area.


Green River: There are 25 miles of river inside the National Park.  We will paddle the first section. It is an 8 mile paddle on approx 100 foot wide river with islands, some sandy beaches, and caves. Some current. Nice float trip.  Wilderness setting, steep banks through mountainous terrain.  Put in at Dennison Ferry boat launch and take out at Green River Ferry ramp.  Nice island for lunch break halfway.


Nolin River: 7.5 mile paddle on narrower river/creek.  Then 1.5 miles down Green River to Brownsville boat ramp.  Some current, but mostly flatwater that must be paddled.  Possible obstructions from trees and log jams.  No portage required though.  Put in is below the dam on Nolin Lake from Tailwater Nolin Lake boat launch.  Nolin flows into the Green River.  After reaching Green, we will paddle 1.5-mile down stream and take out at Brownsville boat ramp.


If you plan a slighlty longer stay, Mammoth Cave is worth exploring!  Lots of hiking, biking trails as well inside the National Park.
