The caverns were really neat. It was cool how cool it got once you were in the caverns. The only thing that I didn't know going in was that it's really muddy. Be sure to wear shoes and pants/shorts you don't mind getting Oklahoma red dirt on.

I just stopped for a break this time, going through the Caverns at the last tour. The tour is about 45 minutes long, with muddy steps and paths. There aren't the normal stalactites and stalagmites as it isn't a limestone cave, but a gypsum cave with interesting rock formations some made from alabaster. There are colorful domes and walls with... More

Even most people in Oklahoma don't know about this gem. The park is small, but most RV sites are shady and restroom facilities are good. Hiking trails are short, but some nice views. The tour through the caverns, at no cost, is very, very good. If you're into caving, you can also arrange for self-guided cave explorations. The visitor center... More

Let me start by saying this is not a casual stroll along a paved walkway with an elevator at the end. This cave was muddy and my little girl renamed it "Drippy-Slippy Cave." That being said, it is a fascinating tour with beautiful cave formations. The only way to see the cave is to sign up for the hourly tour... More

Enjoyed the tour and great escape from the summer heat into the cool cave for an hour! Staff was friendly and kids loved the gift shop after our tour!

During the tour we found out only 3 black alabaster caverns in the world. One in China, Italy and little Freedom OK. We came when it has rained a lot prior so has a little mud but has handrails and no one in the group of 43 had any slips or falls. Has timed lights thru tour so have to... More

I had read about this and wanted to check it out despite some bad reviews. Glad I did. Our guide was pleasant and knew the facts of the cave. It is a comfortable 50* in the cave. It is also damp and a little mucky. Therefore I would suggest wearing shoes that you aren't worried about getting stained from the... More

Be sure to visit. The caves are very colorful, the alabaster formations amazing, and the guide was excellent. This is well worth a tour. I reminded us of Luray Caverns.

We had never been in caves before and didn't know what to expect. Tour guide was fairly knowledgeable and friendly. It was a bit wetter than normal, I understand, due to the heavy rains the area experienced so the red mud on the path was a bit slippery. The paths were lit by lights on the handrails. We got to...

My husband and I went on a lantern cave tour and it was a blast. Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. It was nice and cool in the cave too and really made for a wonderful experience in the hot summer weather. We also walked around the park for a bit before the tour started.
