Karst-O-Rama 2020 has been CANCELED, due to the COVID-19 contagion!

PRE-REGISTRATION HAS BEEN CLOSED!!! Registration will re-open in 2021!

Crawl, climb, or walk your cadaver back to your gravestone until we bring Karst-O-Rama back from the dead!

The cave trips, the Howdy Party, your favorite vendors, and let’s not forget Party Camp’s sauna & hot tub, and more will join the resurrected speleo-olympics and noodle wrestling for three days of downright deadly fun!


Karst-O-Rama (KOR) is the annual caving convention hosted by the Greater Cincinnati Grotto (GCG). It takes place at The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve (GSP) near Mt. Vernon, KY. KOR is like a family reunion that’s presented by cavers volunteering their time and talents, for cavers and runs from Friday through Sunday featuring guided cave trips, cave equipment vendors, the Guano Grill (snack shack), kids activities, and caving related contests, among other activities. There is a “Howdy Party” Friday evening for everyone to get reacquainted and on Saturday evening there is a banquet, program, and door prizes followed by music and a dance party. Proceeds from KOR benefit both Greater Cincinnati Grotto and The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve.
