Kennamer Cave is a beautiful stream cave that is a little over two miles long. The cave features an upper entrance with a very nice waterfall flowing into the cave. A lower entrance allows a way to go in one entrance and out the other. About halfway through the cave is a large room filled with breakdown boulders, featuring one giant block of stone called Moby Dick. The cave features many other nice formations, large walking passage, and a waterfall.

SCCi completed the purchase of Kennamer Cave in January, 1997. The property is 227 acres and includes the main sink entrances to Kennamer Cave, as well as Upper Kennamer Cave, the 120 foot deep Kenna Pit and the 144 foot deep Secret Pit. Kennamer Cave is over 12,000 feet long, has six entrances, and is one of the finest caves in Alabama.

Please park at the start of the 4WD road and walk up the logging road to the entrance.
