We showed up at the gift shop area (Where you buy tickets and are later led down in your car to the cave parking area) and glad we showed up the early tour. As a result we got an almost private tour (one other couple) through an amazing cave. Linda, our tour guide, is passionate about the cave and it... More

The entrance to this cave is not at the Gift Shop area, after purchasing your tickets you will get back in your vehicle and follow the tour guide back a country road to the cave entrance further back on the property. So if you arrive at the cave and the parking lot is empty, do not assume the cave is... More

This million year old cave was hollowed out by a forceful stream of water. The reamining carved out rock along with stalagmites and stalagtites are very interesting. The host, Linda, was very knowledgable regarding history and details.

This cave was a little off the interstate but so worth the drive! While the cave is for sale, it is still open with tour times 4x a day Wed. thru Sunday. The cave is enormous with a wooden walkway throughout. The tour guide Linda is very knowledgeable and clearly has a love for the cave. She gets excited to... More

My mom and I are huge cave explorers. We were looking at seeing Cub Run Cave today and it was a journey to get there. As we pulled up, we noticed that the place was completely empty. Not one person or car was there. There is a "For Sale" on the outside of the property area. Sad news, since it... More

I took my 15-year old daughter and her friend to see this cave and all of use were amazed!! I have never seen 15-year olds so awe inspired over something natural (it does not have screens or buttons and it does not text). We actually visited several caves (including Mammoth) and this cave was our favorite, The cave is exquisite... More

I noticed the sign while driving to Nolin Lake. After being at the lake for a week I decided to take my family and check out the cave. I can't tell you how impressed all of us were. The tour was amazing and the tour guide was exceptional. I could go back several more times and see something I missed... More

I've been going to Nolin Lake for 12 years now and just this past weekend was able to experience Cub Run Cave! It was a rainy Saturday and we couldn't get the boat out, so we decided to check out the cave, and I'm so glad we did! The tour is approx 1.5hrs and I believe a 3/4mi walk round-trip.... More
