Worth the effort of FINDING NEMO!

Our GPS for some unknown reason, ignored South Dakota when it updated. (The maker was made aware). As a result we had a tough time finding Nemo, (LOL), but we finally did, and... read more

Our entire trip was beset with disappointment because we found out upon our arrival in the Black Hills that 9 out of 10 attractions close their doors after Labor Day. After an afternoon full of closed doors, we were so excited see a billboard for Wonderland Cave with a big "OPEN" sign plastered across it. Score, right?? We drove and... More

Our GPS for some unknown reason, ignored South Dakota when it updated. (The maker was made aware). As a result we had a tough time finding Nemo, (LOL), but we finally did, and the drive is worth it. This cave is touted as the only live, growing cave in the Black Hills. If you like caves, don't miss this one.... More

I enjoyed the tour, the cave itself and the little gift shop. Yes it is a bit of a drive (caves are where they are) but worth it for me (although I don't have anything else to compare it too). Really cool formations and piqued my interest to visit other caves in the future.

The signs for the cave need to be updated, they make it seem like the cave is just around the corner, when it is in fact still miles away, down gravel roads. There were a lot of cool formations inside the cave, but the tour guide talks about what the formations look like (giraffe, baseball bat, lawn gnome, etc.) more... More

I found the tour guide to be very knowledgeable regarding all aspects of this cave. The staff were wonderful especially the guide and shop keeper who both had a wonderful sense of humour. The small gift shop was well stocked with all different kinds of rock carvings. The only thing I would recommend for people such as myself is to... More

This was a bit out of the way but the tour was interesting. It wash't one of the most fascinating caves we visited but it was cool. If in the area it's worth the time.

Another geological wonder of the Black Hills! I've read people complaining of the stairs and how some experienced some difficulty climbing back up. People will find anything and everything to complain about. One has to look at the wonder and the magic of the Black Hills and this cave meets all expectations, probably more so than Wind Cave. Our guide,... More

This is a beautiful cave. The tour guide really helped make the experience fun with their observations and explanations. Yes, there are a lot of steps but it is worth it. You'll see all sorts of great geologic features - stalagmites and stalagtites, flowstone, etc. Make sure to bring a coat it was nice and cool on a hot day.... More

Really enjoyed it! Lots of fun too! Way up the mountain though. Little to expensive for what it is but still a great time!
