I remember Polar Caves as a kid, and shockingly (I'm kidding) they are the same. It was nice to see the walkways and stairs have been replaced, they've done a great job with the upkeep. The shop has so many fantastic items, I could look around that place for hours. Just so many unique things, beautiful artistic objects, a really... More

I used to live near these caves and had a season pass so my daughter and I could go anytime we wanted. They are well worth the trip and kids especially like the scrambling in, under, over and around the tight spaces. (There are bypass paths for those who get tense in tight spots.) There is also a zoo of... More

The polar caves is a great place for a family spend a fall day. Small petting zoo, nature trail and plenty of caves to explore. My 11 year old loved it. Not much to eat there so pack a picnic lunch.

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
