This is a tourist trap that is definitely not worth your money. The ice cave is a unique and interesting natural attraction, but it has been been exploited by the owners of this property. Admission is $10/person, and that gives you a 45 minute tour of the cave. But the tour guide seemed to have just memorized a script and... More

We really enjoyed this cave and tour when we were there in July. Our tour guide was great. I loved the black Labrador that has her ball ready to play fetch in the parking lot. We had a really good time. Definitely something to experience.

The Shosone Indian Ice Cave is an interesting stop. It has all the characteristics of a typical roadside tourist attraction but on a more primitive scale. There weren't bathrooms with running water but there was still a large collection of trinkets for sale and touristy items and photo opportunities that might not have anything to do with the area. There... More

Driving from Twin Falls to Yellowstone this is a nice place to stretch your legs and cool down. Little kids are the perfect audience and if your never seen a cave it would also interest you.

We made a special trip to see this place and were glad we did. It's quite interesting how nature can create a natural refrigeration system that will generate tons of ice. The tour is relatively short and fairy cheap. It was worth the stop.

We visited the cave on August 1st. I grew up in the area but had never visited the cave but had heard of it from friends and family. We went on the tour with a guide named Jeremy and he was friendly and talkative. He needs more training, one of our fellow guests asked him how long he had been... More

the Ice cave was interesting although the tour was not really good in terms of knowledge or truth in the statements and items. Inside the cave was interesting and really extraordinary but the cave bear only lived in Europe not in America so there is a little hype the feature itself does not need false embellishment. Nice to see and... More

We went as a family and had a great time. We arrived a couple of minutes late and the guide waited for us instead of making us wait for the next tour that started in an hour. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. He took his time answering our questions and gave us plenty of time to explore. The... More

We stopped on our way to Craters of the Moon and it was worth the stop. We arrived just in time to start the guided 45 minute tour. There are numerous steps going down and the same ones coming back. The cave is in a lava tube and is different from any other cave we had seen. The trail is... More

A small ice cave and stunning beauty. Located in the very hot, you can encounter snakes up and down need a coat. Temperature differentials are very high. Stunningly beautiful place, suitable to visit in all seasons. Is located near the city of Twin Falls, Idaho.
