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

This cave is a must see...the best I've been to. I'm so glad we did a little research and found this cave...not as advertised like the others. I could have not been more impressed with everything about the entire experience. Even though we visited Mammoth Caves the day before, this is the cave that made our long drive from home... More

We went on Spring Break and this is the best cave and tour I have ever gone on. Linda is a very friendly and knowledgable guide and the elevated walkway makes for an easy trek. The entire tour was dry except for a few drips from the ceiling that Linda informed us were "good luck cave kisses". The walkway took... More

We visited this cave during the government shutdown in October 2013. The cave was recommended to us by the people at Horse Run Cave, and I can say this was the BEST cave I've ever visited. The cave was well lit (with the lights being turned on and off in front and behind us) and open, which helped my claustrophobia... More

This is the best Cave Tour in KY! Secret entrance deep in a beautiful woods on the owners property was so cool. They have kept it completely natural. Tour guide was sooo awesome! We showed up unannounced on a Sunday at Noon and got a private tour with JUST our family. Saw bats, cave crickets and white crawfish! Nice people,... More

The colors and formations are pristine! The cave is being preserved expertly by the owners. It has not suffered the smash and grab indignities other, better known and visited caves... More

I had seen no advertisements for this cave. I learned about it from a guide at Mammoth Cave. I think this must be one of the best kept secrets in the area. There are a number beautiful & unusual formations in this cave. It is an easy tour, on a well built board walk with hand rails. There are only... More

As we left the cave my wife said, "It would be a travesty to miss this." Many beautiful and varied formations. Elevated wooden walkway for easy and close accessibility and preservation of the cave. Lighting fine for photos. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide. First choice cave even if you only do one.
