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

I took my 7 and 10 year old children here on a mid summer Monday morning. I had read the reviews so I kind of knew what to expect. The attraction had many of the typical white mountain things: animals to view and feed, gift shop, and picnic area. The caves were pretty cool; my kids were very uninterested in... More

This is our third year coming with our 4 & 5 year olds. All year they ask, "when can we go to Polar Caves?". They love going through the caves and paths here. It is a easy hike as everything is on a boardwalk or stairs/ ladders.

We stopped by for a visit to the Polar Caves on Saturday, August 23rd. We were on a family vacation with 4 adults and 4 kids, ages 3, 6, 9 and 14. We all thoroughly enjoyed the adventure of going through all of the 9 caves. It was fun and a must do if you're looking for some bonding time.... More

This attraction is a series of rock formations in the side of a mountain that you are allowed to walk, or mostly crawl through. Myself, the wife, and our two kids 23 and 12 went through here in about two hours. Neither myself or my wife are in any kind of good shape, so we bypassed several of the tighter,... More
