This was a cute cavern. We stopped here because it was about halfway between NYC and Lancaster. We enjoyed the tour - about 30 minutes. I liked the small scale - no crowds. Afterwards had lunch on their picnic tables and walked down the nature trail.

My mom and I enjoyed the tour and the guide was very nice/good, but the building could use a little sprucing up. The building is old and the bathrooms need a facelift. I'd definitely recommend the stop, and it would have rated higher if not for the restrooms! The gift shop was quaint and the staff nice.

Lost RIver Caverns is a great place for kids. Our granddaughter's just loved it. It's old, not very large but for a first time cave experience for kids it is great! Our tour guide Emily did a great job and answered all questions asked of her. The tour lasts about 30-40 minutes and you exit into the gift shop. The... More

Good family fun. Although we have visited here several times before, this time we took our grandsons. We enjoyed it all over again. The gift shop / museum is an added plus. Great custom jewelry as well.

We had the opportunity recently to visit the caverns and really enjoyed it. The building and grounds haven't been updated in at least twenty years, but that added to the charm. It's a great spot tucked away in a residential area and the cave, although small, is perfect for little ones to explore and learn about caves. Our two young... More

Old place, but fun for kids if they never been. Tour guide was great, and people in gift shop were very friendly. Price of attraction was very reasonable and the little trinkets in gift shop were very reasonable as well. I would recommend this place for anyone passing through the area who has an hour to spare.

We've been to many different caverns in the eastern part of the US. These caverns are small by comparison but interesting nonetheless. Our tour guide, Lexie, was excellent. She gave us a lot of interesting information about the caverns. The temperature in the caverns is a constant 52 degrees so wear or bring a sweater or jacket. I would recommend... More

Even though small and short on formations, this is a lovely introduction to caverns. My grandson was very interested in the River. He also did two gem pannings and was quite happy with the results.

This is an okay cave if you've never been to one before, but there are not a lot of formations. The guide was obviously summer help and seemed to get her 1800's and 1900's dates confused. Best part was the explanation of the water running through the cave and how they tried to discover its origin and where it flows... More

We have been to several caverns before and enjoy the visits, as we did this one. The tour takes about 45 minutes and the guide was very friendly and informative. There is a constant temperature of about 53 degrees in the cave so it was nice for a summer day. I thought the price was reasonable. The gift shop is... More
