It was a nice little trip. It rained just before we arrived so the water in the cave was at a nice pace. It was pretty (We didn't get wet). The kids enjoyed the whole thing. The... read more

While vacationing this summer my family went on several cave tours throughout Kentucky, this is the only one we traveled across state lines to visit. Boy was it worth it. While most tours we were on were anywhere between 20 and 75 other people, this one was just our family. (My family included myself, husband our three children ages to... More

Wow! We feel very honored that our cave was the best you went to! It is small but it's so packed full of formations and streams. Thank you so much for coming and I'm glad you could catch us on a slow moment so you had the cave all to yourself. More

Wife and I visited yesterday. I was last there 24 years ago in 1991 in 4th grade. Tour guide Don was very nice and knowledgeable. Tour has changed some; starts in tour shop and down the stairs past the cemetery and to the waterfall. He said that some rocks fell a few years ago and due to insurance they can't... More

Beautiful cavern and a very thorough guide made for an excellent visit. Highly recommend for all ages. My 12 year old had some schooling without even knowing it!

Hi Patti, I'm so glad we were able to sneak in a little education on your 12 year old! It's so great that we can all learn and have fun at the same time. Thanks so much for coming to visit! More

Since this was the last weekend before school started we wanted to make use of a free ticket my daughter (7) got for a summer reading program. You can enter the village at 9am which we did, but nothing opens until 10. We walked around checked things out and took pictures. Our cave tour was one of the first with... More

A great way to spend a hot day. Nice facility. With the mill, candle shop, rock store, soap shop and the cafe there are plenty of other things to do before or after the cave tour.

We did the cave tour after the zip lining. Nice & cool since it was so hot outside. Tours leave every 1/2 hour so the groups are not too big. I believe they said there were 72 steps down to get to the cave. A spiraling stair case straight down! And you have to climb back up to get out.... More

If you want to see some great formations, visit this cave. Of the four on the Indiana Cave trail, I think this was my favorite. The huge rimstone dam was amazing. There are 73 stairs in a spiral staircase to get into and out of the cave. This was pretty hard, but the tour guide lets you take as long... More

I start every cave review with this tip- parents, please think twice before bringing small children into a cave; it's dark, damp, and can be very scary to them. When they spend the entire tour crying, it ruins the tour for everyone else. Also, caves are damp and slippery- if they're small enough that they have to be carried, it... More

We hate that you had a bad experience on the cavern tour because of a person being disrespectful with a flashlight. Over the last month we have discussed our flashlight policy several times due to your review. We want our cavern tours to be family friendly because if we don't teach our young people to respect and enjoy caves than... More

Squire Boone Cavern is a fantastic cave. Although relativity small it has many formations. Clearly what makes this cave unique, and deserving of an excellent rating is the largest and most beautiful rim stone dam I've have seen. This is clearly a cave you should visit. Be warned there is 73 stairs to get into the cave and also several... More
