My 5- and 10-year-old boys yelled "This is awesome!" as soon as they climbed down into the first cave, and that pretty much sums up the Polar Caves experience. These are rough boulder caves, not huge underground chambers, such as Howe Caverns in New York. However, having been to both, I would say that the Polar Caves are even more... More

Visited here late summer with my hubby. It was our first time exploring the Polar Caves and found it an enjoyable and interesting experience. I just wished I had remembered to take my camera with me, lol. Lots of colorful birds and some deer to check out before embarking on the walk to the caves. Fun, would love to do... More

We went here for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. We mainly went for my daughter who is 4, but all enjoyed it a lot! Some of the caves were too difficult for her but she did go in a couple. All the caves have a bypass which was still a great walk around up the mountain.... More

We have not been here in quiet a few years and were amazed by the changes. They went from 5 caves to 9 caves and have beautiful grounds to walk around and explore. Just about all of the caves have a bi-pass so if you are unable to go through one, you can by-pass it. The map they give you... More

I took my niece and her girlfriend there. Even though there was very heavy rai, we all had a great time. The girls were not at all bothered by the rain and took it as a challenge! I enjoyed watching them have such a great time and also had fun myself

this should be fun for children if the cost is not a problem. Certainly not a place to go if you are 20-30 something. These are not even real caves, you basically have to go trough between piles of big rocks. This area offers tons of great attractions that are way better, free or cheaper.

Thanks for visiting. Sorry you feel this way, we do often here that we are not real caves, but we are! We are not a cavern (which might be what you are more familiar with) , but we are caves!

We have been to Lost River a few times (another nice family place) and decided to try Polar Caves. We all had a great time. Our 7, 9, and 11 year old wanted to keep going through the lemon squeezer and orange crush many times. The caves are larger and longer than Lost River. Polar's lemon squeezer is not as... More

We love the Polar Caves. This was our third visit over several years. Fun for kids and adults alike and if some members of your party aren't as adventurous they can bypass each cave and meet up with the rest of the party easily. If kids are in your party don't miss the panning for gems/fossils at the end of... More

I think the prices are high to climb through rocks . There's not much else there . You would think they would have some nice flower gardens to look at as you walk through the park . And once you get to the highest point the only view is trees and the sky . Plus the staff in the shop... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy yourself. I am not sure how you missed all our lovely flowers in the animal area, but they have been in full bloom for well over a month and are real nice, I will add some of the pictures of them to this site when the sun comes back out. As for nothing... More
