This National Park is far away from most everything. So if you are willing to invest the time, this cave tour is essential. You can call a few days in advance and make reservations and I HIGHLY recommend that. The phone number is found at www.nps.gov/grba. Otherwise you might not get same day tickets at the time you want.

This is (I think) the smallest national park, but worth the visit. The caves are beautiful, you do have to be on a guided tour. I have done both day and night tours, both are worth the time. Hiking is great around the park, lots of wildlife.

Take the longer tour if you can, the last room was amazing. Bring a flashlight too. You can light up formations as you walk instead of depending on the limited lighting in the caves. It was a lot of fun and a great thing to do on a rainy day.

You have to take a guided tour, for obvious reasons, so check at the visitor's center to see when the next tour is. Interesting formations. Wear a jacket!

Ask for Ranger Dustin--he is funny and knowledgeable. I would do the full 90 minutes as it is over before you know it!

If I had it to do over again, I would choose to be a Geologist. I recommend you see the movie at the Visitor's Center either before or after you tour the caves. The movie is well done. The caves are phenomenal and the accompanying historical/geological information is fascinating. We had a lovely dinner in Baker at the Lectrolux Cafe... More

Wow.........Please take the extra time to get off the beaten path and go see Lehman Caves! You won't regret seeing this amazing creation. And the history behind it all is awesome. My hubby and I took the $10.00, 90 minute "Grand Palace Tour", Ranger Katie was our guide. We wore shorts with a very light jacket, the caves stay at... More

What an experience! 60 or 90 minute tour. Indescribable wonder of nature. If you're claustrophobic or otherwise unable to negotiate tight spaces, think twice. I walk with a cane, and if I'd known what I was getting into, I might have thought twice. I'm glad I went! Since 1974 the caves have been much easier to negotiate. I have great... More

My husband and I took the 60 minute tour with Guide Diane. She was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Every review talks about the gorgeous cave, they are all correct. This tour is fit for most people no matter your size, height, weight or activity level. There are places you need to tuck and shouldn't be a problem for most people.... More

Lehman caves were awesome and a great value, $10 for the 90 minute tour. It's a little chilly so a light jacket will be a good call. Ranger Debbie was great... informative and entertaining.
