Law Enforcement

There are lots of fun, interesting, and educational things you can do on Sauta Cave National Wildlife Refuge.  Keep in mind, if an activity is not wildlife related and does not help in the protection or understanding of wildlife or their habitat, there are probably refuge rules governing this activity.  Please check with the refuge management before participating in an activity that could harm the environment or yourself.  

Sauta Cave itself is gated and not open to the public due to the potential for disturbance of federally endangered gray and Indiana bats.


Open daylight hours only (year-round). The cave entrance area is open until it gets too dark to see the emergence.
