We joined the short Cave-Tour. Our Ranger-Guide was Kevin from Kentucky. He explained and illustrated everything very good. It was a fascinating walk through the Lehman-Cave. You have also enough time for all questions, which he always answers in detail. Don´t forget your sweater! The not so good experience was the young Ranger at the Register in the Visitor Center....

We made reservations because we went on a Sunday but our 11am tour filled about 10:30. The Rangers here are all great, such a nice group. And the cave was really fantastic. You have to dodge the formation just to walk. Normally you're not quite this close to them. If you've been in another cave within a year and are... More

Tour groups are limited to 20 people which is just the right size for this cave. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the presentation by the ranger. Be sure to take a jacket as it is chilly in the cave. The formations are quite fascinating and the story behind the discovery of the cave is quite interesting!

Enjoyed the Lehman Caves. Took the one hour tour. Amazing formations, plenty of opportunity to take pictures. Tour guide very knowledgeable and informative. One family on the tour had a screaming kid for most of the tour. Dark areas in the caves, not a place for little kids.

Definitely worth going. We did the 90 minute tour and our young ranger guide was very knowledgeable. The history of the cave is interesting and see and hear the story behind the insignia room. Different formations than I've seen elsewhere.

We took the Grand Place Tour, 90+ minutes long. We reserved our time the day prior, as we were camping in the nearby Lower Lehman Creek campground (a nice quiet location, right on the creek). Our ranger guide was great, lots of information and a good sense of humor. We have taken a fair number of tours at various caves... More

Outstanding cave tour. I highly recommend the 90-minute Grand Palace Tour as the place is loaded with interesting features, yet is a short walk, so easy and interesting! The ranger who lead our tour was highly knowledgeable about the Cave features, imparted lots of interesting facts, and kept it lively for the group. We were able to ask lots of... More

Definitely reserve your space by calling during the summer months if you want to ensure a spot. Nice cave - we did the 90 minute tour. Lots of formations and great picture opportunities.

This is well worth the time to tour the caves. Beautiful area and very peaceful and quiet. Baker, NV is very small and limited facilities but a great high plains desert experience. Traveled there to visit an old friend who is retiring from the National Park Service soon and knew I wanted to see this remote area of the country.

We visited Lehman Cave and did a 1 hour tour of the cave. The guide was informative about the cave and surrounding area and very friendly. This was our favorite stop on our 4 day trip of the area. Will return and do the longer tour on our next visit to the area.
