So please fellow cave goers follow the map!!! Don't follow other people when you get into cave one, and for the love of God do not turn right.... dead end!!! Definitely got my adrenaline going as this was the first time I had done something like this. It must have taken us about 40 min to travel through this cave... More

I knew from the website that these caves are not ones you can just walk up to & into, but, once I realized these narrow holes in the ground were very dark, had jagged rocks in the bottom (we could see them with a flashlight we'd brought along), and with several spiders nearby - yeah, I just couldn't make myself...

This is run by the Otonabe River Conservation Authority and is open for camping in the summer. There are a number of great hiking trails and they are open all winter when you can snowshoe or cross country ski. There is a sand beach on the Indian River and as it is very shallow it is suitable for small children.

The caves were awesome. Mother Nature has left her mark on this area in a positive way. I personally am too old to climb down into the caves but those who did were loving them. We had a great hike up to the lookout.

This is a very nice park to visit with the family. There are moderate hiking trails, some small caves to explore, kettles to see (not the kind you make tea in) and a nice little beach. Lot's of great spots for a picnic. A very economical day of fun with something for the whole outdoors family.

This is a hidden gem for active people that like caves! There are several underground caves, many connecting so that you can enter one and come out another. Be warned that they are pitch black and very low and sprawling. You need to bring a headlamp and clothes you don't mind getting dirty! If you don't want to crawl around... More

I absolutely loved the Warsaw Caves. Self-guided caving experience lasted around 2 hours through a series of 9 different caves. Lots of opportunities for exploring deep into the caverns. Bring a headlamp and be ready to get muddy! We were there on a weekday in August and had the caves to ourselves which made it seem more adventurous. After the... More
