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

Listen to every review on these caves! This was the first cave system that my friend had ever been to, I have been to many in caverns in many states. I was so pleased that we found this little gem, it is a bit off the beaten path but worth it. Our tour was very small, only 4 of us,... More

We decided to visit this place before we left Kentucky. My biggest regret was the fact that we had wasted our money at Mammoth Caves a few days earlier. Cub Run has everything that Mammoth Cave has and more. We saw more, learned more, and enjoyed it a lot more.

Cub Run Cave may seem a bit out of the way but don't let that stop you from visiting. In fact, it's kind of cool to travel a short distance off the beaten path to find such an amazing place. We visited on a weekday and got very lucky that nobody else was scheduled to go on the tour with... More

NO UNEVEN WALKWAYS,NO VANDALISM,only 14 stairs,wonderful wooden walkways,build by the Amish, so close to the cave ceiling it would be possibe to touch if you were allowed. There were many beautiful formations ,some not found in any other cave. Our guide,Linda loved her job and the cave. She was able to share a great deal of history and knowledge of... More

My husband and I visited this cave during our vacation at Mammoth Cave National Park. The park ranger actually told us about it otherwise we may have missed it. What a gem. It was the most beautiful of all the caves we visited because it has never been vandalized and it also has so many different types of formations not... More

My wife and I came to the area to see Mammoth Cave. We found that most all the tours require walking on uneven paths and many, many stairs, which I am not able to do. That's also true for the other caves in the area, except Cub Run. This was a great tour. The one hour tour has a total... More

A very nice cave with lots of interesting formations. A nice change of pace from some of the larger more visited caves.

This was a last minute addition to our week-long vacation because it was recommended to us, but was the absolute highlight of the whole week. We did the 4:30 tour and visited the gift shop. It was only $14 for the 1 1/2 hour tour (we stayed for 3 hours in the cave) each person. We traveled with couples, but... More

Cub Run Cave was recommended to us by tour guides at two other major caves in the area. It is a little off the beaten path, but worth every bit of the drive. Being a wet, living cave, there are more formations than you can imagine. The wooden walkways make for an extremely easy and secure trip through the cave.... More
