Park Activities

At 7.5 miles, Russell Cave is the 3rd largest cave in Alabama although it is the history of the people that lived here that has made this site nationally significant. Aside from Russell Cave there are over 1500 caves that have been explored in Jackson County. This calculates to more caves per square mile than anywhere else in America. Caving is permitted in many north Alabama caves however; access to Russell Cave is limited to the geologically unusual cave entrance. This flat, protected space is where artifacts have been found dating back to some of the earliest human occurrences in North America. See demonstrations presented by Park Rangers of prehistoric tools and weapons such as spearpoints, atlatls, pump drills, making fire with bow drills, blowguns, nutting stones and flintknapping techniques.
