Enjoyed the caverns. The waterfall is beautiful. If your coming up to Howe Caverns, take the extra trip up the road to secret cavern. Both places are unique in their own right. Neither should be missed.

My husband and I decided to stop at Howe Caverns on our way home from Cooperstown (A few years back). Once we started seeing the campy, tourist trap signs, we decided Secret Caverns was right up our alley and detoured. We absolutely loved the caverns. We were part of a very small group (6 people) and our tour guide was... More

We wanted to see the caverns but didn't think our five year old would last the 90 minute tour at Howe Caverns. The Secret Caverns are great. The entire tour is interactive and kept the attention of my five year old (plus he was free to get in). We had a great day and memories that will last a life... More

My husband & I have already been to Howe Caverns so we wanted something different. Enter Secret Caverns...it's a bit quirky with the signage but totally worth it. Our guide (I think his name was Joel or Josh - can't remember) did a great job explaining things and he had an awesome sense of humor. On the return trip back... More

We went to Howe Caverns the day before which we absolutely loved. However, Secret Caverns was pretty spectacular as well..the waterfall was incredible and our tour guard was very informative ...

Secret Caverns was a fun way to spend some down time. Since it's a pretty quiet time of year, we had our own tour. Prices are several dollars lower than Howe Caverns, down the road. This place seemed to have more off season hours than Howe as well. Our tour guide, Garrett, was full of all sorts of knowledge and... More

Initial plan was to head to the more popular Howe Caverns, but with a cheaper price tag and longer hours during our visit, we made our way to Secret Caverns. These caverns are indeed one of the best kept Secrets of the area. Our family; myself, hubby and two tween boys had a blast descending into the bare bones RAW... More

This place was great. It doesn't look like much on the outside but the caverns are not as commercial as howe caverns. Expect to be walking on rock (not a brick road as in howe caverns) in small tunnels where only one person fits at a time. It's a great experience for adults and kids. Would highly recommend!

Howe Caverns is great...but commercial. Secret Caverns is great to just enjoy the aspects of a cave.

This roadside attraction was lots of fun. My wife and I as well as our adult children had a ball. Much better than nearby Howe Caverns which is kind of a tourist trap, Secret Cavern is small and amazing. The tour and visit to the museum and gift shop can be done in under two hours. The guides are friendly... More
