This is a little tour boat that shares a tale of a man that used to work the mine and is haunting it. I don't know about ghosts, but I do know it is a beautiful cave with glorious works of natural formations. If the water is high it might not be open. Call ahead to check. The date of... More

While it is possible in a flood that we would close for a very short amount of time, that is extremely rare. Normally we control the water level with valves and an alarm system, and the water level is consistently within an inch. More

Husband and I were staying in McGregor Memorial Day and found reviews for Cave Creek. There isn't much to do in the area so we decided to go check out Spook Cave just 10 minutes away. We are sure glad we did! It wasn't busy since it was the day after Memorial Day so we ended up being in our... More

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
