You’ve chosen to stay at Jellystone Park™ Golden Valley, for its scenic location, tucked away at the base of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, but did you ever imagine you could see inside one? Linville Caverns, North Carolina’s only show cavern, is located about 40 miles from the Camp-Resort and is one of our favorite nearby destinations we love to recommend to our campers for a day of exploration!
For centuries, the marvels of Linville Caverns were unknown to man. In the early 1800’s, a fishing expedition headed by Henry E. Colton, of eastern NC, discovered a small opening in the terrain as fish swam in and out of what is now a public tourist attraction. The Caverns have been open for tours since 1937, giving visitors a glimpse into the history of its formation.
