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

Thank you for taking the time to review our cave/park. We are so happy that you got to cool down after your zipline tour. Being up on the lines can be so exciting but it sure can warm you up. More

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 mine stone shop is a bit expensive, the girl there wasn't very enthusiastic. Everyone else around the park was nice and personable. It... More

Hi Brian, Thank you so much for the review. And thank you for letting us know about our not so friendly rock shop attendant. We will be doing some retraining with her. We are very glad you enjoyed the cave and the other activities. 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

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

This is one of m favorite caves to go to in Southern Indiana. It's not very big but it has some neat formations and great little history lesson of about Squire Boone. It's great for families with small children . They also have a little village with some different shops and a zip line. Their gift shop items are affordable... More
