Stopped in on the fly as we were headed to Yellowstone. What a surprise. First off be prepared for a physical day but not back breaking. Like some have said the hike to the cavern entrance is not easy, but well worth it. Tour was excellent and absolutely beautiful.

The cave tour was worth the hike. It's not an easy hike to the start of the tour especially if you aren't used to much altitude. It is a paved path though. There are some tight areas to squeeze through and maneuver once in the cave so may be a little more difficult for those less mobile but there were... More

We stayed here one night, on our way through to Yellowstone. The campground was very nice. Not very treed, but that's the nature of the area. Each campsite had a lot of space and the playground was very nice for the kids. Flush toilets a plus :). We wanted to try to do the cave tours, but didn't have time... More

The caverns are still very natural and with amazing stalactites, stalagmites and columns. One of the best parts is an area where you have to slide or duck walk on the limestone. Really cool! The only trouble I had was on the walk up to the top of the cavern. It is plenty wide and a good dirt path, but... More

Was roaming around the Three Forks Area of Montana when we saw a sign for this park. We followed the signs and went in the park and took the tour of the caverns. These caverns are great! Important things to remember are that there is an uphill walk to the entrance, there is a downhill walk from the exit and... More

This is the second time here. The first in my 20's and now in my late 50's. There are some very tight and low spaces as well as uneven steps so if you have phobia's or physical troubles I would not recommend. There is a hike up to the entrance also. As for us, we loved the rock formations, bats... More

This isn't for everyone, it's a cold cave not a Disneyland ride. The kids that were 5 plus on our tour having an absolute blast as you crawl thru this 2 hour cave. Yes you can get wet, yes rats/bats and yes birds can poop on you. No poddy in the cave, hold it for 2 hours. We had great... More

The caverns were amazing. Part of the enjoyment was the hike up to them. The scenery is breathtaking. We had Derrick as our tour guide. He is so knowledgeable; and willing to share what he knows. I will definitely do this again!

This was amazing! Our tour guide was excellent and the view in the rocks was tremendous!! Long drive to get there but totally worth it for all of us. The kids (5-16) were thrilled and loved how dark and cold it got. Do not miss this on your journey!!

I think this cave tour should be more up front about limitations. After driving hours off course for a stop here, and checking that kids are allowed, we were told we couldn't bring our stroller (small umbrella stroller) for our 2 year old. It seemed too late to just leave so we gambled and got tickets. About half the 2... More
