If I hiked up to the Whites Creek Cave this weekend, would I be able to get in?

Probably closed for the bats and the white nose disease fear. Check out the NFS website for 11pt, it used to tell the times it is open or closed. The disease scare closed it permanently I believe unless it is over.

It never opens before May. That being said, it will be closed again this year. Just talked to the forest service yesterday about it.

That is one great cave. This white nose excuse is a load of huey. We dont have it here in MO. It is just an excuse to keep folks out of the caves!

I have been going to the 11pt for 30 years and have never went into or up to the cave. Many times we put in at Whitten, waded around Whitten and by the cave trail, but never tripped up to it. Last summer we started to go and read it was closed. My friend fished it since he was a kid and used to go there all of the time. But I really don't like snot nosed flying mice in tight spaces, so I will pass.

White's Creek cave is more my type of cave, it's HUGE and you can walk with lots of room to spare. At least the part I've been in. There is a sign back in there that tell you to go no further. Too bad you never got to go in, it's about a 15 minute walk from White's Creek Float Camp.

If it ever opens up again, take a stroll up there and check it out.

I just read they're talking about building a gate for another cave (not near the river) in Oregon County. I've never been to it, but ATVs riding in it is one of the reasons. All this time I thought it was a little cave entrance, even though it goes back over a mile.

Coldspring, I see you are from Kosh KO NONG ga nong, ga nong, nong, it was so funny to see the sign with a little beer buzz traveling up to 19 jct out of Thayer. Where did the town get that name anyway? Has to be an indian name of some sort, wonder what it means?

My same friend used to crawl thru caves in Perry county, not my style. Always had to second guess him when he said "lets go caving" with one little flashlight. Would be alright if dry and can stand up.

Another little oddity in our trips to the area was passing thru Low Wassie.
