Was a nice family outing. The spiral staircase is old and wet/slippery. Part of cave was closed off. My only complaint was 2 people taking pictures constantly. In that dark environment they about blinded everyone. Should be no cameras allowed. Parking is $5 and bakery is expensive

The setting at this cave is beautiful. The walk through the cave is not very long. You get to the end and turn around. There are 64 circular steps at the beginning (according to my son who counted each step). My favorite part was the casket/body of Daniel Boone's brother. We went to the bake shop and had a cookie...

We visited here recently. Grounds and staff all very nice . The cluster of buildings hosting the various trades from milling to candle making all enjoyable , as was their staff. The cave tour , thru no fault of theirs, evidently -- was a little disappointing. The cave has been blocked off and the complete , one way tour is... More

My husband and I won tickets to Squire Boone Cavern last Fall and decided to visit during our Fourth of July weekend road trip around southern Indiana. We enjoyed the two hours we spent there, but we were a bit disappointed in the cavern tour. During our tour, we passed by (obviously) significant things that were not talked about by... More

I took kiddos to see the beautiful caves in this area and ended the day by visiting Squire Boone area. They were so excited to dip candles, and we entered the little wooden building , to find the most bored girl in the world. She had difficulty keeping from yawning and smiling was absolutely not an option. My little girl... More

I am so sorry for your bad experience with the candle dipper. We heavily stress to our staff how important it is to show our guests Hoosier hospitality and clearly the candle dipper did not do this. Would you mind to let us know what day you visited the park? We are pretty sure we know who the candle dipper... More

My friends and I arrived here first thing in the morning and we were given a private tour with just the three of us. Our tour guide was very nice, funny and knowledgeable. He was able to answer any questions that we had with ease. The caverns are gorgeous and very cool to see. Our favorite part was the underground... More

My mom and I decided to visit since we were in the area. They have beautiful formations, but I feel that there wasn't much geographical information involved. They do make the best of a short walk with so many great formations.

We want to thank you and your Mom for visiting and for the review. I personally want to thank you for your comment on the tour needs more geological information. That is part of our tourguide training but we will stress this even more and make sure our guides have more information. More

Since I was in the area anyway, I'm glad I stopped. The owners are trying to make the best of a small cave, so that means it's long on the spiel and short on the cave. But the formations are beautiful, and I'm glad I stopped.

My four-year-old son and I visited Squire Boone Caverns as part of the four-site Indiana Cave Trail. Of the four caves that we visited, Squire Boone Caverns most represented the rustic, old-style cave tours with which older adults are familiar. The ground level is a tourist-driven recreation of historic village, complete with topic-specific log cabins surrounding the parking lot. The... More

We arrived just in time for the last tour. Our young tour guide had more enthusiasm for the history of Squire Boone than I would expect from someone his age. That was refreshing. He knew the area and was very informative on our tour. My favorite part was having the opportunity to stand over a waterfall. It really is a... More
