Spirit Mountain Cave Temporarily Closed


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office has temporarily closed Spirit Mountain Cave after a minor collapse has made the cave unsafe for visitors. Permits will not be issued until further notice.

“The BLM is working to ensure the cave is safe for visitation and will reopen it as soon as possible,” said BLM Range Management/Cave Specialist Bryan McKenzie.

The Spirit Mountain Cave is located on public land on Cedar Mountain, approximately three miles west of Cody. More than 600 people visit the cave each year.

For more information, contact McKenzie in the Cody Field Office at 307-578-5900 or at bmckenzi@blm.gov.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
