Welcome to the forum.

Clarksville Cave, also known as Ward-Gregory Cave, is located on a preserve owned by the Northeastern Cave Conservancy. See the website here for further information.

It's a fun beginner cave, which I've visited many times while living in the northeast. Coincidentally, I've also backpacked in Denali NP many times while living in Alaska. It's a little tough to find caves around there, though.

Enjoy your trip to Clarksville.

Welcome, freewhirling! As NZcaver said, go to the NCC website and click on the Preserves, and then Clarksville for information.

The cave is open. There is a parking area and a nice changing booth for both before and after, an information kiosk, including cave map, and easy trails to the entrances. A through trip is possible, but you will get a little wet if you go through the affectionately-named "bathtub," so have have dry clothes available to change into - especially this time of year. Enjoy!
