This was a disappointing outing for both parents and kids. It is basically a boat ride back into a cave. There are no real formations to see. If you're lucky they may point out a bat. Otherwise, it's a lot of darkness without any of the stalactites or stalagmites you would hope to see on a trip into a cave.... More

We discovered Blue Springs Cavern this winter and attended an Overnight Adventure. It consists of three parts: a demonstration of caveing climbing techniques, a 'wilding' crawl through a short section of the cave, and a longer boat trip. The crawl was somewhat strenuous and more than a bit claustrophobic (for this leader- the boys were fine.) The rope demonstration was... More

it is a fun trip under the cave system that runs for miles underground in Lawrence Co. They do a good job of explaining the beginnings of the cave and all the exploration that continues. You get to experience the different formations and also complete darkness. It stays 55 degrees year round and the tour guides always have fun little... More

It's been quite awhile since we visited Bluespring Caverns. But what I recall most about the trip was the friendliness of the workers and tranquility of the cave. Do yourself a favor this summer and make the trip. You'll be glad you did.

The entrance to the cavern is through what use to be a pond. It was formed when the bottom of it collapsed. You walk down a long concrete ramp, into the entrance and to the boat. The entire tour is on a boat. This is a nice relaxing tour with a very knowledgeable guide.

In this natural cavern -you have the longest navigable underground river. You go on these little boats, it's kind of fun, and kind of goofy. If you're into roadside America type things, you'll love this, It's really cool, (and cool, a nice respite from summer heat). If you're claustrophobic, you may want to take a pass.

Boat rides on the hour this time of year. At other times, they may have all four boats taking tours at the same time about 15 minute apart, so my husband and I felt very lucky that we got a relaxing one-hour tour alone, even though the boats will hold 17 people. We had a wonderful tour guide who was... More

Very cool cavern! Our boat tour guide was very knowledgable and could answer any of our questions. The cavern was an excellent condition as well. We did have to wait an hour for the next tour and there wasn't really anything to do so that was boring, but still worth the wait. Very fun place to stop with your family!... More

Our tour guide really seemed to enjoy his job and was able to explain the history of the cave and the area. He made the tour interesting and pointed the major points of the cave. This is a boat ride tour, darkness at times and peace and quite can be found. we did not get to see any blind fish... More
