Key Cave National Wildlife Refuge’s 1,060 acres are open to public entry from dawn to dusk. No motorized vehicles are allowed to enter the refuge, unless vehicle operator or passenger has in their possession a valid handicapped permit. Vehicles may be parked at the interpretive kiosk parking lot or at other designated parking areas. Handicapped parking is available at both the interpretive kiosk and the paved parking area located off of the refuge road, near the center of the refuge.
Key Cave itself is managed for protection; therefore, it is not open to the public due to the potential for disturbance of the federally endangered Alabama cavefish and gray bats.
