We did not know exactly where these caves were located and must admit that we probably would have opted out if we did. Turned out to be a happy time. We really enjoyed exploring these caves. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Total walking is about a mile. There are many stairs (I believe they told is 126 one... More

Can't say more then Average as we didn't get all the way there ! Don't know if it was the Nav unit , the AAA Map or me ? We left from Sturgis down Vanocker Canyon and found the sign posting (or lack of !) terrible. The conditions didn't help at the time and we appeared to be the only... More

Good to finally get the kids out to a place where they could learn about nature. No cellular phones I told them. Amazing what mother nature can do on its own

We decided to do something different and going down in a cave seemed like the thing to do. The lighting in the cave was very good and we were able to get pictures and navigate with no problems. It was cold because of being underground but it was tolerable especially in the summertime. It is a nice place to visit... More

Didn't think I'd ever get to the cave. Just following signs and the last 2 miles are on a dirt road. Had a few deer jump out at me and then give me a dirty look. This isn't for the handicapped or someone who can't do steps. 123 steps down and then back up is worse. Huffed and puffed all... More

The signage for this particular attraction is vague and sparse. We had no idea what sort of road or the distance. It's a winding gravel one lane up in the hills. We did the Lewis & Clark caved earlier in the week, so it was nice to have some sort of comparison. While this one is less physically challenging, it's... More

The formations in this living limestone cave are truly spectacular and the tour guides make it great fun. At least two spots are extremely tight and many areas are very low ceilinged. At 5'4" I found myself ducking three or four times. The last two miles of the drive, after you leave Vanocker Canyon Road, are 1-1/2 lane gravel with... More

A 45 minute tour of a beautiful cave. They have added many sections of stairs and lights. Just beautiful. Have to see to love.

This is by far the best cave in the Rapid City area. The cave is active and the formations are fabulous. Cody the tour guide was fun and informative. If you want to see a cave, this is the one to see!
