Great cave and fun for the grandkids

We had gone to another cave earlier in the week and decided to take the grand kids ages 11 and 13 to Crystal Cave. It was about an hour ride for us and the directions were good... read more

This Crystal Cave is the worst one in the area. There are plenty of beautiful caves and caverns in the Appalachians. This one is just a boring corridor that you visit 2 times, with very few interesting concretions, very old installation, slippery paths, rusty hand rails ... Everything has been built long time ago and there is visibly no recent... More

We enjoyed it because we had never been in a cave. Learning about the discovery was interesting. Experiencing nature at her best was intriguing. On the negative side, the guides were rather young for the positions; and, the cost was too much for the value of the tour. Remember to take a sweatshirt--it's cold down there. Also--I do not recommend... More

Recently my 10 year old grandson came for a weekend visit. We wanted to take him out for the day on Saturday and decided on Crystal Cave. It was about an hour drive from our home and is located in beautiful scenic Kutztown, PA. The tour guide in the cave was very knowledgeable and made our journey through the cave... More

Interesting if you haven't been to many large caves. The tour makes the most of the not so large cave with stalagtites, stalagmites and imagined sculptural figures.

The blonde lady is EXTREMELY RUDE! Not to mention costly for a ridiculous tour of the cave. The tour is managed by kids very unprofessional. The tour seemed very scripted and boring to listen to.

Crystal Cave was easy to find. There is plenty of free paved parking. We got there after noon so we decided to eat lunch first. The restaurant is basic burgers, hot dogs, fries, etc, but it was fast. The place was clean and the food was decent for what it was. It is a little uphill climb to the cave,... More

Caves are nice. Felt like we pushed through to fast. Think they have tours to close together. Very annoying to have to listen to the tour guide behind while trying to hear what our guide was saying

It was pretty cool to be able to see natures work but the older blonde at the counter is EXTREMELY RUDE!!! The tour does have a lot of stairs which they dont tell you before purchasing tickets so if you have any medical problems that would stop you from hiking up stairs this place is not for you. The young... More

Crystal Cave was discovered in the late 1800s and is a great day trip. You pull into an area that has an old inn, original to the 1800s, that is now used as a gift shop and ticket area. There is a bit of a hike (5 minutes up a lot of stairs) to get to the entrance of the... More
