I have came here more then once with my family. The story of the cave never changes but I still love coming back to it. And it's first Halloween thing they did was pretty cool other then they started bringing the people in costumes out before all the tours were out . So that was kind a bummer. It's not... More

this was a great trip. There of course is the cave but there are many more things to explore here. The old water shed is great. The guides are very knowledgeable about the cave and the area. Thi is a cave so watch your head, there are low points and sometimes you don't know they are coming up. Great trip... More

This was recommended to us by a fellow traveler and we found it to be a nice attraction. The tour consists of getting in a boat and riding through a cave with a guide who tells stories. The campground around the cave appears to be quite nice. The cave is natural with some embellishments. The boat ride can be a... More

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
