We visited the Lewis & Clark Caverns in Lewis & State Park between Bozeman and Butte Montana on our recent trip to Glacier National Park. My husband had enjoyed visiting the caves as a teen, and again as a young adult and he wanted me to see them as well. Caves are not really my favorite thing, as I am... More

If you are driving on Interstate 90 between Butte and Billings, stop here - it is just a short detour off of I-90. It costs $5 per vehicle to get into the park (for non-residents), and then $10 per adult for the cavern tour. Before getting to the cave entrance, you have to walk uphill for about 15 minutes. Some... More

This cave is full of twists and turns and at a couple of points we had to slide down to a lower level (4 or 5 Ft.) on our backsides. It is full of interesting formations. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and did a great job at making it a memorable experience. Anyone in the area who is not... More

We just happen to see this cave on an advertisement along the freeway. Glad we stopped there. The cave is pretty spectacular. You have to walk up a dirt road for about half an hour. It is a 300 foot total incline. The cave was great, lots of formations and even bats flying around. We even had to sit down... More

We camped at this Montana state park for 4 days and had a great time. The campsites are large although not many trees, but fabulous views! The caverns are very interesting, but it is a significant hike uphill from the parking lot to the entrance. It had many tight squeezes and low places though. The toilets and showers are rather...

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
