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. The have Squire Boone's Coffin in the cavern. Although we didn't do... More

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. The tour guide was very nice and patient with my children's questions. The cave itself is really cool. You do have to climb 74 step down to... More

My family & I found Squire Boone's Caverns, in some State issued tourist book. It's kind of out of the way. It costs $5.00 per vehicle, just to get on the property. Our expectations were low. But, this was a great place to visit. We ended up spending several hours here. The Grist Mill, is still a working mill. It... More

I had a great experience here; they have friendly staff members and the prices are cheap for the experience. The caverns are amazing to see and the tour guides are great at what they do. Be prepared to learn a thing or two about geology and history as the guides are knowledgable in both subjects pertaining to the caverns. Overall,... More

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...
