On one of few really hot days this summer, the cool cave was a nice contrast to the outside temperatures.

We had to travel over an hour to get to the cavern. It was a nice drive and a pot of gold at the end. We took the short tour as the long tour involves 700 stairs. You get to visit two different cave rooms and spend time in each one sitting down on benches and being able to ask... More

Can't wait to come back here and see the caverns. Want to do a full tour. We didn't have a chance to go through but from what we've read and heard its worth waiting for the tour. We will be back soon to take the tour of the caverns the ranger station there is awesome Museum and indoor theater

Took the hour and half tour. Cave system is beautiful. The cave formations unbelievable. Our guides, Joe and Charlie, were the best. They were very informative and answered any and all questions. It was obvious both guides loved there job and was passionate about caves. The tour keeps everyone on walkways and folks are discouraged from touching anything not man... More
