It had been 18 years since we'd visited this place, and thought we'd stop by just to see how it had changed. We found out when we got there that you can no longer tour the cave, due to a threat of a devastating fungus spread by people, to hibernating white-nosed bats. While I can understand and applaud that the... More

We really enjoyed seeing the area outside Dunbar Cave- it is peaceful and beautiful. Unfortunately the cave itself is closed due to a bat disease, so that was disappointing

A nice break from town and very close by. The cave was cool even tho we couldnt go inside. Well maintained walking/running trails through the small, heavily wooded park and around the pond.

Although the cave is closed due to white-nose bat fungus, the hiking trails are open. You can take a nice hike along the 1 or 2 mile trails through woods and fields or the 0.7 mile walk by part of the lake. The far side of the lake is on golf course land, so I don't think you can walk... More

There is also the pond where fishing is allowed. You can also see turtles, ducks, geese, and sometimes swans. There is a small museum on the grounds as... More

This is a wonderful place to visit if your interested in early human history. The cave is obviously closed down however it is real nice to go to and visit with friends or family.
