The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve

NOTE: Due to a public COVID-19 resurgence in Rockcastle County, the 2021 GSP Open House has been rescheduled to May 2022.
With the relaxing of restrictions by the State of Kentucky, the RKC Board of Directors has re-opened all the RKC Preserves for visitation, effective June 28, 2020. See the individual Preserve pages for restrictions that may apply.
The state restrictions on social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment are to be followed while at any of our preserves.


The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve is RKC's first cave preserve. RKC accepted ownership of the property on August 20, 2006. The preserve is managed by the Great Saltpetre Cave Management Committee. The Management Committee consists of members from the Greater Cincinnati Grotto, Dayton Underground Grotto, Blue Grass Grotto, and Central Ohio Grotto.
