We've lived in Montana 22 years, and have always wanted to visit the famed Lewis and Clark Caverns. We made it this past June, and were so glad we finally did. The two-hour tour starts with a rousing little hike upwards to the mouth of the cave. Once inside, you’re cautioned to whisper, so as not to wake the “babies.”... More

These are great caverns that need to be seen if going through Montana. I have been there multiple times and I see something new each time. The half mike hike to the entrance needs to be done slowly, or you can get winded by the time you reach it. But they give you time to relax before a tour starts... More

This cavern is located in a very scenic area with vistas of moutains ,canyons, and lots of trees. Buy your ticket before you get up the mountain( at the main building) so you know what time your tour will begin. If it is a wait (summer) they have a Café /Deli at the top , which is handy. After meeting... More

I have been going to the caverns since I was a small child. At that time there was a small train to take you to the entrance, now you get to hike it. Fortunately there are seats along the way to rest, It isn't a bad hike and the views are magnificent! Once inside the coolness feels lovely and there... More

A very cool tour of a very special place. The best part....a slide in the middle of the cave system. Ask to see the bacon and eggs! This place is far less commercial than other caverns and it was more enjoyable. Tip: Get Pam as a tour guide, if possible. She was friendly, funny, and as a lifelong spelunker, extremely... More

Our second time visiting this attraction. Two-hour guided tour, much to see. Bring extra layers to wear as it gets chilly, and a bit damp on the lower levels. ***** for natural wonders. The park could beneficially pay for diction lessons for our particular guide, for we could barely understand his speech, even without the echoes in the cave. Pity... More

After 2+ years of wishing to see these caverns, we visited them this last weekend, fantastic time! The hike up to the entrance was a steep and hot climb, yet the view from the trail was amazing. The caverns are exquisite, well lit, with railings to hold when it was a bit steep on the steps down into the next... More

A bit of a hike to the caverns, especially if you are not in shape. But the caverns are great, worth the trip.
