We found a brochure on this Park at our Microtel hotel and decided this was where we would spend our first day in Montana. The drive from Bozeman was a good hour and a half? But it was so worth it. Being seniors, I think if we had known there was going to be a mile hike, up hill, to... More

This is one of the coolest places I have been. This is a great adventure for the whole family. The tour of the caverns is 2 hours long but it won't feel long. You are not walking for 2 hours straight. There is a lot of standing, exploring and learning about the history. The guides do an amazing job to... More

What an absolutely phenomenal little state park. We came in with moderate expectations and they were exceeded in every way. The park itself is beautiful, but the caverns are the star attraction here. We were fortunate enough to have Stuart as our tour guide on the two hour tour we took. He was an incredibly knowledgeable guide. He kept us... More

so amazing.. loved the beaver slide, hugely tremendous columns, stalactites and stalagmites.. demonstration of how the caves use to be viewed by candle light. glow room was pretty awesome. I've been in 4 caves and this one is definitely tops! don't be intimidated by the 2 mile, 2 hour tour. worth every minute.

Warning - this is a physically strenuous tour. You are a mile above sea level and you climb about 500 feet from the ticket booth to the cave entrance at a fairly steep climb. You then descend over 600 steps, slide on your rear for a short section, and duck walk several times during the tour. I took this tour... More

Reviews are correct. Not too far off the highway. Easily accessible. Pick up parking pass first. Then drive the road to the top and entrance of the caves. Picnic spots and trails all along the way. We bought our admission tickets at the top to the caves and only had to wait about 20min. Gave us plenty of time to... More

I have never done a tour of this kind before and didn't know what to expect. The tour guide was full of so much information about the caves and the area that I really felt like I knew exactly what I was looking at. Parts of the tour are challenging as you have to walk lots of stairs and crouch... More

This cavern tour was one of the most authentic caving experiences we've done. You truly get the caving experience but in a safe, up close, doable for most environment. The Ranger was excellent, great tour guide. If you only do one cavern, this is an incredible journey to undertake. If you have children with you, this is a not to... More

This 2-hour-long tour is the best experiential cavern we've had (and we've toured MANY caverns & caves!) It's challenging to say the least (STRENUOUS hike to the entrance from the ticket booth) with SEVERAL steep stairways, crouching/stooping & "slide" areas once inside which makes this tour seem like a "wild cave"-lite excursion. The lighting shows off the formations without the... More
