I visited Lost River Caverns with my 11 year old and we had a great time. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and could explain what we were seeing in great detail. I'd be shocked if he doesn't have a scientific background. We were very impressed with the tour and everyone in my group had a great time. If you... More

My family and I visited here and my 2 year old daughter loved the idea of walking underground and looking at the rocks. The caverns had many different rock formations and a bridge that let you walk across the river. The tour guide was very informative and was patient with our 2 year old. Across the street there were picnic... More

This is apparently a smaller cavern than others on the east coast. It's a small operation & the building above the caverns is dated, but the people who operate it were friendly, laid-back and VERY knowledgeable. Ask them anything you want to know. The gift shop has a good assortment of various types of rocks if geology is your thing... More

I arrived about 12:45 PM and no one was in the area for the tours, this is the week after Labor Day. Down in the gift shop area there was 4 to 5 people, I went down to the gift shop area and not one person asked if I wanted anything or if I wanted to go on a tour.... More

Not very big but cool once you were inside. A little pricey for what they had. I would say go but don't rush there

My son's into rocks, crystals and geology, so this was an obvious day trip. Not the largest cave, but what set it apart for me was the underground spring/river that passes through. Nice gift shop if you're in to rocks, crystals and fossils. Bathroom facilities leave much to be desired.

The young guy who conducted the cave tour was friendly and knowledgeable. The gift shop was filled with junk and the restrooms were deplorable, but I enjoyed my visit. Maybe they need more visitors to pay for renovations to the restrooms. Yikes!

we had seen the signs for this cave a number of times since moving to the area, and finally decided to visit. It is a small cave located just south of Bethlehem. It is easy to find off the Main highway in Hellertown. There were tours every half hour in the summer. the waiting room has a number of nice... More

This is my second time at this cave. Its a nice cave to tour. The tour guides are friendly and give lots of explanations. There are bigger and more impressive caves to see in the US however they werent created by man so nobody is at fault for it looking the way it does (a response to somebody that wasnt... More

We've been to several caverns in the area, including Crystal Cave and Indian Echo caverns. This does not compare. The tour was very short - just about 30min. There aren't a lot of rooms or formations. The tour guide was OK, but needs a few new jokes. The gift shop is cluttered and disorganized. You could have some jewelry made... More
