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

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

My family and I toured the cavern on a Thursday afternoon. The caverns are superb with many interesting features. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The gift store is nice with a wide variety of souvenirs. The rock shop has the best prices I have ever seen on fossils and polished stones. The soap and candle stores sell items... More

Very nice cavern. To enter the cave you must go down a spiral staircase for sixty feet straight down. Not bad going down but a real chore for a man my age to climb back up. The cavern is so beautiful inside. Our guide said that we were ninety feet below the surface. We were there late in the day... More

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

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
