This is a very well maintained nature park and the scenery is unique and beautiful. It was quite pricey, but I like that my money is helping to preserve this beautiful place. My kids loved the caves and were very excited to go in each one. They had no problems navigating them. I, however, underestimated my claustrophobia (it has never... More

Highly recommend this for a great day out. Seemed a little steep price wise at first but brilliant afternoon here some amazing caves to explore & all in the company of chipmunks & red squirrels. Good laugh had by all squeezing through caves.... Avoid the lemon squeeze if your at all nervous of enclosed spaces! But there is alternative routes... More

My kids and I had a great time. Though initially I thought it was pricey, they definitely do a great job keeping everything in tip top shape.

Perfect family day, really beautiful but who doesn't want to climb into caves with your kids. The formations are fantastic, the history and the workmanship on the walk ways is so well done

This place has a great view and lots of these narrow caves that my daughter and her cousins absolutely enjoyed going into them. I had been here a few years back when our daughter was quite a bit younger. When we visited N.H. again this summer, this was on the list to do. Great place for kids and teenagers.

We liked this hike and stair climbing. Very nice day and the gorge is beautiful. Funny seeing the kids crawl in and out of the caves. We did a few of them.

Full disclosure - we usually go to Polar Caves for our "cave" experience when we come to NH. We wanted to try something different, so we came to Lost River this year. The scenery is beautiful - it's in the White Mountain National Forest, so it should be. But with the boardwalks and stairs so well built into the scenery,... More

The price of admission is SO worth the park. The caves are amazing and if you can fit through them, then do it! I must have taken over 30 pictures here. So beautiful and a must see if youre in the area.

It's kinda pricey for a family and even midweek it was very busy - kinda hard to enjoy - I felt like I was in a Disney World line... We went in late morning so maybe go later in the day or first thing when they open. My son loved the caves and we still managed to have a good... More
