Nothing else to do besides walking. There used to be a beautiful lake full of wildlife, but that's now been drained. I haven't toured the caves since they reopened, but I heard it was nice and informative.

This park is great if you want to go for a short hike, walk around the lake and/or fish. Other than that there is not much too it. There used to be caves you can go into but the bats contracted a disease and the caves are closed. As for fishing, I've caught two fish there out of the 10... More

First we went there we couldn't find anyone and the cave was not open. When we went to the office they told us there was no Ranger available that day to show us the cave and we won't be able to trail too.

Dunbar cave is an excellent example of a wet cave. It has many interesting things to see. The walking trails are great too!

Love visiting this place, so quiet and peaceful and beautiful. Come in the hot summer months. You will be amazed how cool the air is.

Very cool cave and tour. You hike in about a mile. Tour guide was excellent. You must bring an extra pair of shoes as they give you a bag to wash your dirty shoes off to prevent the spread of white nose fungus that kills bats. bring a good flashlite as well.

We really wanted to tour the Dunbar Caves, so we took the 2 hour drive from our hotel to do so. Sadly neither the website, nor the lady we spoke to the day prior said anything about the ONLY TOUR being at 10:00am. :-(

This is a nice place to walk / hike / run with nature. A moderately technical trail well maintained and you can see Animals all throughout the year.

Even though it started raining and I didn't walk the trails it was still a great site. They have tried to preserve nature as much as possible in close acess to an urban eviroment, The woods almost engulf you as you go down the trails, The cliffside to an entrance to the cave is very well kept. The only drawback... More
