I have had the privilege of visiting Bluespring Caverns twice in the past year. On the first visit, I went on the boat tour. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. On my second visit, I walked the nature trail and my 10 yr old cousin had fun looking at all the things to see. Definitely worth the stop if you... More

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Indianapolis. Brought 6 kids, age 2-12 and had lots of fun. Walk down to cave is steep and slippery, but don't let that stop you. Boat ride is informative and fun. Great way to start cave visits. Loved the demonstrations that our Guide gave us on darkness, cave thunder and especially when... More

Extremely interesting experience to be below ground on a River---excellent guide and smooth floating. Peaceful and informative...the walk down and back to/from the cavern opening could be a physical challenge for some so I would ask if there is an option if that is an issue. Will go back with others for sure!

It's not often that you can take a boat ride through an underground cavern. Seeing the critters that live under the water was a great experience. The ride was about an hour or so and the park ranger was very knowledgable.

Make sure you dress warm. It gets very cold at only 54! An hour long boat ride. Very steep in and out of the entrance. Don't bring babies, they will cry when the lights go out. And when other things happen. Kids can enjoy looking for gems. Gift shop is nicely priced.

I went with my daughter for my Birthday and was not disappointed. It was small but the tour was very well done and everyone was very nice. it is a short trip from IU in Bloomington and the drive is very pretty. Loved the boat ride and the experiments they do half way through. Like "lights out" and "cave thunder".... More

This was a lot of fun for everyone in our group. We had 5 kids (ranging in ages of 5-11) and 4 adults (40-60s). We started off our afternoon with a quick picnic near the visitors center. Then, we went for our tour. All the adults had been to some type of cave before, but this was the first cave... More

Really cool. Our guide was very nice and we had a great time in the underworld! It's really like going to another world, the silence, the darkness, surrounded by that blue (today was a bit murky) water and rock formations. We recommend the trip. It's not expensive and can be enjoyable to people of all age.

A fantastic boat trip on part of the longest cave system in southern Indiana. Always 52 degrees under ground so dress accordingly.
