I really enjoyed the cave tour. Close in comparison to Carlsbad Caverns but def not as big. It is well taken care of and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Good for everyone. Would prob not take a child under 2 as its hard for them to sit still and enjoy.

If you like caverns you do not want to miss these. There are 2 different caverns with one being seasonal. They are both beautiful with one being a easy walk the other one being more challenging. Defiantly worth a visit.

Amazing tour, the guides were educational and funny. My family loved this adventure. We took the Discovery tour which included 700 stairs, but don't let that detour you, they were not all in one area. The cavers are exceptional.

A visit to the living caverns is a must. Excellent staff will explain the interesting history behind its discovery, preservation, exhibition. And please don't touch. No one wants to see a dead cave.

We took the drip stone tour because we were told it was easiest for kids ( we have a 5,10 and 13 year old) and was one of the prettiest. We were not disappointed! I was in awe of everything we saw, so much beauty. It was dark and creeped my 10 year old daughter out some but the rest... More

Dripstone tour August 12th was awesome. Approx.1 hour, paved walkway, and not at all difficult for an almost 60 couple to navigate. Guides were well versed and spoke loud enough all could hear. They answered all the questions without pause. They did seem in a bit of a hurry and pictures were a challenge since I was shooting without a... More

We chose the discovery trail tour. It was a great tour through multiple rooms. The path was wide and smooth with wide open spaces. There were lots of stairs which they make sure you are aware of. You see many cave formations and our guides were great to explain and answer questions.

This cave is run by the National Park Service and one can recognize the organization right away. It is well run, well kept and it only costs $5 each to get in. The tour lasted about an hour and it was perfect. It has signs around about it being 55 degrees in the cave and many people were wearing jackets,... More
