This is a fun tour during the summer (in December they offer this tour by candlelight). The hike up to the cave opening and start of the tour is a bit rigorous. I do not recommend it for anyone with breathing difficulties. Also if anyone in your group is claustrophobic be aware there are some areas you need to be... More

The head waters of four major rivers. The park ranger was very informative and gave us good directions. The beach was nice and clean and provided a nice recreation area for everyone.

We had a great time at the caverns. Our guide, Jim, told horrible jokes but was a real kick and extremely nice. The caves themselves are really interesting and climbing around inside is fun. You should be ready for a strenuous hike up a hill just to get into the caves themselves. I saw a lot of people who were... More

The kids (12. 12. 13) and I did the tour today. It was great. The guide was a little rude and a poor teacher but the cave made up for it. A great tour. We will be back for the candle light trip they have over the winter holidays.

We absolutely loved our experience with the Lewis and Clark Caverns. They are full of wonder and beauty. In fact, we loved it so much we are headed there again this summer. Last time we were packing two little ones. This time they will hike it themselves. It would be hard for the out of shape I think--put worth it.

The cave tours had just closed for the day, but we had a delightful visit with the staff at the visitors center. Beautiful Place to visit.

Wow! What a wonderful caverns! This park is well run, and features a great tour through beautiful, extensive caverns. Very family friendly if you are able to do a bit of hiking. We visited twice as a family, and stayed at a cabin there. We all enjoyed it. I had to carry a three year old for some of it,... More

This is AMAZING! Our guide was a local young lady on summer break from college. Very knowledgeable and personable. This is is a must visit place. I was in awe. You will take a 1/2 mile 300 vertical hike to the entrance and then descend over 300 into the caves. So this is where Disney gets their ideas. There were... More

This was a really terrific experience! I had never been in a cavern like this before and I loved every minute. Sabrina, our guide was so informative and really looked out for us. The formations and all the work done by the CCC were equally impressive. The only down side was I could not find post cards or a book... More

This cave is not for big & tall people nor the mobility impaired. The tour starts with a 20 minute walk up a 7% grade. Once you're warmed up, you enter the cave. There are many stairs (mostly going down) and one part that you actually slide down. Some spots get very narrow and or low. The tour took two... More
