The cave tour is worth the time but bring something to keep warm if it's hot out because it is very cool inside the cave. The campground is also very nice and staff was very friendly.

We had such a great time, and the lead on the boat was very knowledgeable about the cave. We had enough people to fill two boats and had a wonderful time. Did not stay at the campground, just went on the boat ride.

We stayed the night in their "Hut" small, but meet our needs. The beds are up enough off the floor that you can store your luggage and camping gear under them. It was just as advertised. Camp staff were friendly, and eager to help with anything. Fire wood was reasonably priced. Ice was to. Bathrooms were well kept. We had... More

We stayed in the camp ground with our two teenage children, and the entire facility was top notch. The grounds are very well kept and everything was very neat and clean. The swimming pond and beach was also very nice. The cave tour was also a neat experience and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Prairie Du Chein is... More

This place is what I would call a "roadside" must see. It is a very interesting tour with lots of local information and history mixed with folklore. We loaded up on the fishing boat with a total of 8 passengers and the guide. Our guide was a young man who did a great job of explaining the cave and the... More

Visited the cave with 6 teenage boys and they thought it was fun. Campy, a bit hokey, but all part of the experience. You get into a fishing boat with a small motor and the guide takes you through very narrow quarters while explaining things. You often have to bend yourself in half to fit through. This would NOT be... More

Our guide was knowledgeable and it was a great family cave tour. It was pretty cool to go in the cave in a boat instead of walk. It stays a constant 49 degrees in the cave and they have nice lighting in there to see everything.

Such a fun day. This attraction reminds you of a day gone by. Take a John boat into a cave and listen to the story of it's beginning. Our teens really enjoyed it. Be prepared to "duck" a lot as you enter the cave. The campground seems very peaceful. check out the working water wheel outside of the cave and... More

It was an interesting ride although we wish we'd known about a third of the ride is spent with your head on your knees ducking to avoid low ceilings. Interesting and friendly guide. About a 30 minute tour for $11 adult cost
