L&C caverns are a great place to check when traveling through Montana. I have visited a number of times and had fun each visit. Tours are about two hours. Start will a 3/4 mile hike up to the entrance with great views of the valley below. Then you get a guided tour through the caves. Tour is different each time... More

A short uphill walk leads you past fossils to the cavern, which you can visit only with a tour guide. Nesting bats at the entrance were delicate and beautiful. Lovely and varied cave formations. The cave is very extensive, with multiple chambers connected by stairs for the most part. There are a few sections which require the visitor to stoop;... More

We needed a stop on our way to Missoula. It was a great escape from the hot day. Be prepared to walk for 2hrs and bring a jacket it's cold in there.The guides all seemed very nice and the staff at the park were friendly and helpful

Be prepared to walk and a sweater isn't a bad idea, although not uncomfortable in the caves. The guide was wonderful , funny and informative. The caverns are beautiful. My granddaughter wasn't sure about going, Heights aren't her favorite thing. However, she told us she would go back.

We had a fortune to stop by the place on a rainy day, when no other tourists were around. We got a virtually private tour of the caverns, which were truly amazing.

My wife and I stopped in at the caverns in early August on the way home from Yellowstone and went on the tour. Total tour time is about 2 hrs and includes a bit of a fairly steep hike up to the cavern entrance (0.8 mile). The tour through the caverns involves navigating through some tight spaces and climbing some... More

We went on this tour to the Lewis and Clark Caverns, it was a excellent tour. The tour guide was very informative and helpful. It was very naturalized, the caverns were awesome.... Very neat and well kept grounds maintained well. It was about a two hour tour including the hike up to the caverns themselves, which was about a half... More

Our family of 4 (kids age 13 and 15) spent two nights at the Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park campground and we visited the caverns at the same occasion. This is a bit out of the way but well worth the detour. The campground is spacious, well maintained with gorgeous views. It was very windy when we stayed there... More

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
