The grounds are beautiful but there isn't much to see. High school kids were working and couldn't answer any questions about the cave. They all knew the script but that was about all. Tour was in a boat and it was fun but very short. Glad I went but wouldn't go back again.

Very reasonably priced, this water tour of the cave was fascinating. Our pre-teen son wants to take his scout troop for the overnight experience. Our guide Will could not have been better at mixing humor and educational facts. I would highly recommend this for all ages.

Where else can you see a cave by boat? Right outside beautiful Bedford IN, this place is a great stop on a road trip on a hot day. Others have said relaxing, and it is the best hing about it, just sit back and let the boat do the walking. Kids may get to see some critters too. There was... More

Tour guide was very nice and the boat ride was very relaxing. Neat story how the cave was found. The park was beautiful.

Very relaxing hour boat trip 125 ft underground. The history of the cavern coming to be and the limestone formations is what impressed us. no, there are not stalactites and stalagmites but it was still a wonder to look at and tour. Our guide, Nick, was extremely knowledgeable and comedic. The grounds surrounding the area are beautiful and worth a... More

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.
