This was a last minute decision to stop that was so well worth it! Not only are there great caves to explore, and spectacular views to climb to, the educational value is wonderful. This location has truly put its heart and soul into giving you all the info about the area, the history, the wild life and plant life that... More

Visiting Polar Caves has become an annual fall outing for us. We come the last few weekends that its open, to enjoy the foliage and its less crowded than it probably is in the summer. You don't need to have kids to enjoy coming here - we are a couple in our 40s. The park includes a small zoo where... More

A two hour drive with the the family to the Polar Caves was well worth it. Lots of parking, less than $20 to get in, beautiful scenery! The lit caves where exciting to explore(a little slippery and wet), my 8 year old son had a blast. You must try the "Lemon Squeeze" Cave. The foliage was beautiful, the Sugar Shack... More

Very fun place to explore - even in the tight spots. We 50 somethings had a blast working our way through each of the caves.

This park is a great place to have fun. It has several sections besides the cave which were very interesting too, such as a sugar shack, walk around cliffs. However the caves are the best part. It was fun trying to squeeze in and out of the cramped areas.

My husband and I visited and were highly impressed. There is plenty to do and see including animals, nature walks, and of course the caves. The grounds were clean and well kept and the staff was super friendly. We went first thing in the morning so it was not crowded and got to take our time and enjoy everything at... More

We found this randomly. We were in Gorham so it was a little of a drive but worth the scenic drive. Worth the price of admission, some hiking was good... it is not CAVES (I have gone caving in Wyoming) but it is more like tunnels. The last 2 are TIGHT AND TINY but you can EASILY by-pass them. Not... More

We've visited a number of other caves, this one was different due to the boulder-tumble nature of how they were formed. The cold of the caves was a nice feature on a hot summer day. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great for kids and able-bodied adults (not for the really timid, or those in wheelchairs or otherwise mobility impaired).

This was our first stop on our week vacation in mid-August and it was a great first stop. With a coupon book our son was free so it was very affordable. Scenery was great, animals in the beginning of the park were good. My 9 year old son loved going in and out of the caves. It's definitely a workout... More
