The drive down is as beautiful as the cave itself. Driving back the countryside seeing the cattle and wildflowers in the field. Crossing the one lane bridge to approach the welcoming building to the caverns. Greeted by a young smiling female. It was $5 a vehicle admission and parking anywhere you like. You come to the gristmill first and see... More

We visited Squire Boone Caverns as a field trip, and loved it! Our guide who I think was Morgan, was extremely knowledgeable, and gave an excellent tour. We had kids of all ages in our group, however our guide was patient and answered all questions even repeating herself. The cave is very interesting and definitely worth the tour, especially to...

The distance from Indianapolis makes for a long day but the drive was worth it. We didn't have a choice for the date so the Village was not open. The hosts are friendly and informative, the tour through the caverns was very very interesting, and user friendly. One of our crew was concerned about claustrophobia but handled it easily, in...

Our spontaneous trip to Squire Boone Caverns has rekindled our love for exploring the outdoors. We are avid hikers, bikers, runners, and boaters, but have become bored with repeating these activities in Indiana. A friend suggested checking out a cave and we randomly chose Squire Boone Caverns as our first stop. We purchased three adult tickets and one child and... More

Short little stay-cation. Cave isn't to big compared to others but the waterfalls and the walk through are something you will never see again. The story of how it was found and settled is great. Lots of history. I recommend!

I have been underground several times and entered natural caves and old mines.The friendly guide at Squire Boone's Cavern points out and explains a thoroughly fascinating collection of Mother nature's handy work. Don't waist your time reading about it, go see the most beautiful art human hands have never crafted.

To get in and out of the cave, there is a spiral stair-case with 74 steps. Once you get down, the rest of the adventure is an easy walk, just remember you have to climb back up the same spiral stair-case. The guides are knowledgeable and very friendly.

We ended up seeing the cave as we couldn't go zip lining and we are glad we did. They did a great job of lighting the cave. You actually don't see the wires.
