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

I went to this cave Labor Day weekend. I did not have to pay for parking that Saturday, but it turned out many of the on-site attractions (the mill, candle maker, candy shop) were closed that weekend. The gift shop was open, as well as the cave tour and the zip line tour. The cave tour cost the same amount... More

This is an odd little place. Most everything here is outsourced from somewhere else. Gift boxes from Dollywood, rock candy from Disneyworld. Odd. For instance, I bought two sling-shots from the gristmill for $1 a piece...since they said "Perry's Nut House" on them. SAME EXACT thing up in the gift shop, branded "Squire Boone Caverns"....13 bucks!! As far as the... More

Got a groupon deal for ziplining...GLAD I did! We had a great time! We went on a Friday so things did close early in the day but we got to go to the candle shop, very nice staff. We had enough time to go through the cave and we really enjoyed it. Our tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable and... More

Got there and everything was closed. Nothing opened until 15 minutes before tour. Zipline tour was just okay for what we paid. Got it through Groupon, but wouldn't pay full price. Staff not very friendly. Just way out of the way and not worth the time or money

Squire Boone Cavern was a very neat place to visit.. The guides are knowledgable of the history behind the cavern.. The formations within the cavern are beautiful and well preserved. It was a great adventure and well worth the time and money.

We had a Groupon to use. We could only visit the gristmill when there were fieldtrips going on, but fortunately there were some this day so we got to see the inside. The cave itself was different because the main entrance was blocked, so we entered through the gift shop exit. This allowed us to see everything twice. And we... More

The village and cave provided an afternoon of fun and entertainment for my 8 year old child. I thought it was a little high, however we had a great time. Upon our arrival, we had to pay $5.00 to park, on top of fees to tour the cave. We started at the General Store, where we got our tickets for... More

I thought the cave was gorgeous. I loved the waterfalls inside. The actual village was cute and historic, but more for the kids. I did enjoy watching the candle dipping, soap making, and operation of the mill. I wish we would've zip lined too!
