Friendly cavern with an impressive underground waterfall!

Unusual signage distinguishes this cavern - one of 200 said to exist in the area. The guides are pleasant and patient and the walking distance is said to be 1/5 of a mile... read more

The guide was so knowledgeable as well as friendly. I liked the signs that told you what you were looking at; and they will be even more appreciated later when we show the pictures!. I have bad knees, but managed to do the 100 steps down and back. It might be too much for some though. The cavern path is... More

Unusual signage distinguishes this cavern - one of 200 said to exist in the area. The guides are pleasant and patient and the walking distance is said to be 1/5 of a mile underground each way. There are some tight passages, but nothing requiring crawling. Do be sure to follow your guide to the end, since the really impressive waterfall... More

I took my two young children to the Secret Caverns during April vacation. The caverns were awesome and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us all about the history of it. Overall it was a great experience.

This place is a waste of time and money. We could not hear what the tour guide said at all he never bother to wait for the whole group before he starts to talk. There is nothing natural about it. It is a man made cave. Also, it is very small, and just a 20 minutes round trip walk. This... More

Went today with my boyfriend and daughter. Had a great time! Garrett, was the BEST tour guide EVER! He was both extremely humorous and knowledgeable. Very personable and friendly with a sense of humor that made the trip that much more fun. Secret Caverns was very hands on and the waterfall underground was absolutely breathtaking! Any questions we had were... More

It is a good visit! I've lived in this area my whole life, and only saw it a year or so ago ... it's truly a CAVE, plenty of wet, low areas to navigate. i was entertained!

We did both Howe's Caverns and Secret Caverns and would pick this over Howe's because it's not as developed, more like what it might have been like back in 1929, although the stairs are an improvement to the ladders. We were there right at 10 when it opened, a group of 8, but had to wait for a tour for... More

We visited this past weekend and enjoyed it. It is different than the 2 caves I have visited in Kentucky. Not for those with a fear of tight spaces. There appeared to be very little altering and I felt like it was the raw, real deal.
