You really get up close and personal with this cave. In other words you get to duck quite often and squeeze through some narrow spots, but that just adds to the fascination of the place. The ranger tour is very informative. There was some unfortunate damage done to the cave features before it became protected park property in 1922. Still... More

The guided tour of Lehman Caves was well worth the stop. We purchased tickets over the phone a few days ahead and picked them up from the rangers the night before, along with a junior ranger book for our son. We stayed in the campground, which was small and somewhat on a slope but well maintained. The tour was excellent... More

This is a must see if you are visiting the Great Basin National Park. You are not allowed to take anything inside apart from a camera but to preserve the caves it is not difficult to leave everything outside. The caves are very interesting and it is awe inspiring to see the stalagmites of all shapes and sizes adorning the... More

Lehman Caves was one of the reasons we drove out of our way to Great Basin National Park. The tour was around $10 (discounted if you have a National Park pass) and lasted about an hour. Due to the white nose fungus decimating the bat population, you are not allowed to take any items you wore or brought into other... More

This is a wonderful attraction. The tour leader was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any question. The tour was well worth the cost as it was very interesting and beautiful. They are located in the Great Basin National Park in the Ruby Mountain Range.

When we planned our trip to Great Basin NP we thought Lehman caves would be a nice optional sidetrip. Actually it was the highlight of our visit. We took the 90 minutes tour for 10 USD. Its well worth the price. Ranger very knowledgeable. Cave is well lighted and easy to walk. A must do for everyone going to Great... More

A non-kitchy, natural tour of a well-mannered group of 20 (the longer tour) ws a real pleasure. The ranger guide Katy was excellent in both information and group control, and very pleasant. Some of the narrowest cave sections we have experienced. Lovely "bacon" and other features.

Only 8 Dollars. Very interesting. Rangers very knowledgeable and friendly. Worth the money. If you've made the long journey to the park, would be silly to miss the caves out.

This 90 minute cave tour was the perfect escape from the summer heat over 4th of July weekend when the temps in our camp site were well into the 90's F. It is 50 degrees in the caves and our tour-guide Ranger Carolyn was animated and very knowledgeable about the cave history and gave a great interactive tour. The Stalactites... More
