The best part about the Green River is taking the time to learn how it affected the cave structures and early commerce of the region. It's a very historical and important feature if you take the time to look.

Today the Green was flowing briskly and moving lots of water and debris. We went to the ferry and marveled at the history of these dozen or so ferries in the area. Quick ride at no charge will thrill the kids..... and adults, too!

Travel to Munfordville to see the river as it has many "green" history signs to tell the story of the battle in 1862 and locally are the battle fields to visit if you are so inclined. Also they tell about the people of the town...More

This river was really pretty to look at, but not a place to swim. I wish our family would have had time to rent canoes but we ran out of time. Scenery was beautiful and it was fun riding the ferry over the river.

Beautiful scenery very interesting to see lots of walking and steps. Pay attention to reviews and wear sensible shoes use the restroom before entering the cave have water with you. Use common sense and this will be a great place to visit.

We went kayaking on the Green River while vacationing in Mammoth Cave NP. We had three kids with us (ages 8,10,13) and everyone was in their own kayak. The Green River is a wide, flat river. I would consider it very family friendly/safe. There's a...More
