This cave is very unique. It's not limestone, so you are allowed (and even encouraged) to touch the walls, which is a nice change, and kids would probably be really into that aspect. The tour (45 minutes, regularly scheduled, on the hour, every hour, price of admission on the website) was lack-luster. The tour guide seemed bored, offered minimal detail... More

great little road side attraction! well worth a visit. the staff was friendly, our tour guide was new so she was still learning the ropes, but she gave us lots of information. it's really an easy hike through the cave, lots of steps, a little muddy and slippery, so one should be secure in ones footings. it's a 3/4 mile...

I love caves and always wanted to visit Oklahoma's only real cave state park. We knew not to expect stalagmites, but the tour was still interesting and seeing black alabaster which is only found 3 places in the world is cool. After taking the 5 o'clock tour, we experienced the Selman Bat Watch, for which you need to enter a... More

I have never been to a cavern that wasn't a limestone type. This cavern has been carved out of alabaster rock. There are not stalagmites, just giant boulders that have fallen from the ceiling. Someday this cavern will collapse onto itself and all that will be left is a canyon. Very interesting to see it.

A long drive from OK City but if you like caves, this one is for you. Combine this site with the salt flats just east of there and you have a full day. Tours are on the hour so if you get there at 10 minutes after the hour you will wait 50 minutes.....and there is nothing to do while... More

We drove out to the cave since we're both Okies and have never been. We were the last tour if the day, which allowed our guide to take extra time and a larger group than normal through the cave. She did a wonderful job pointing out all of the features of the cave and worked with our group on a... More

This review is just for the wild caving at Alabaster Caverns. Some rules for wild caving: register at the office. at least 3 people, each person to have hard hat, long sleeves, water, 3 light sources. (There may be other rules.) The office will give you maps of the caves. Plan on an adventure. You'll get VERY dirty. (see pictures!)... More

On a tour of Northwest Oklahoma one choice was the Alabaster Caverns. We arrived just in time (15 min early) for the noon tour. We were the only ones to go at this time but there were Boy Scouts scheduled while we waited. Nice camping area and picnic area. I did think the $10 pp was a little high for... More

I have read comments about rude staff, and similar encounters of our problem. For, a couple weeks ago when traveling through the area: We walked in the door at 9:00, we were greeted and I responded etc, and said we would like to take the 9:00 tour of the cave. She then turned around looked at the clock, 9:01:30, and... More
