Nice place to visit if you like geology, rock formation and caves. Very nice guided tour. Some steep staircases and metal bridge. Kids will enjoy it. The food was not bad..the usual stuff - chicken nuggets, hot dogs etc. The ice cream shop has some nice varieties. There is also a museum and panning for gems. Overall - a good... More

Other than for people with claustrophobia, this is a great day trip which has all the things you'd expect from a trip to a cave. In addition to the cave itself, there is "panning for gems" ($6), which is popular for kids. There is also a mini-golf course ($4.50 per person), which is an old style mini-golf course that doesn't... More

The history of the cave and how they came to be was very interesting although the hill leading up to the cave was very steep!

My son's into rocks, crystals and geology, so this was an obvious day trip. The cave was larger and more impressive than Lost River Caverns, but didn't have the water feature that made the other cave interesting. One word of warning...there are a few steep staircases and a metal bridge that will cause problems for those afraid of heights. My... More

The cave tour was very entertaining for the whole family. There are steps and uneven ground to consider(it is a cave), but it was a nice tour in a very scenic cave. The staff did an excellent job of explaining the history and story of the grounds. Enta\ertaining for the whole family.

I live only 30 min away from this cave. I went once as a child, and felt it was time to take my daughter as I felt she was at a good age for it, (IMO 7 or older). It's a nice small cave that you should do at least once in your life if you live in the area.... More

A typical cave in the Appalachian mts. On the smaller end of the spectrum. Price is a little high relative to others from PA to VA that we have visited. The trainee guide was green, the veteran was quite polished. There is mini golf on the grounds. They have the gem mining that is a fixture at many caves. A... More

Go here at least once. History behind this mom and pop, family oriented attraction is amazing. The courage the first explorers showed all comes together when they turn out the lights. Good time out in farm country for the entire family. Facilities are a little worn but contribute to the charm. Go

Took a 5 and 18month old here and it was nice. Very cold inside, but good tour. Not too long and kept us entertained and informed. Other things are also there you can do like mini golf , panning for gold and hiking trails.

It was a fun place to visit if you are passing though. Kind of a smaller cave so if you ever went though one before that was bigger you might be disappointed.
