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

Several great hiking trails. These trails are in wooded areas so be careful during the summer for bugs and ticks. Beautiful grassy areas for the kids to play and have a picnic. 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.

Hiking trails are good. There is a small museum open during business hours. The cave is currently closed to tours.

Wonderfully kept grounds with wooded paths. My dogs love this place and they provide doggie waste bags so you can clean up after your pets. I wish they would hold more events!

Dunbar Cave State Park was once exciting with outdoor dances in the 40's & 50's. It was owned by the country music star, Roy Acuff in the mid 20th century. As a teen in the 60's this was the place to tour. Today it has hiker paths, and a lake where many go fishing. There is a small museum inside... More

Went hiking here and found the is a beautiful place. The cave is an awesome site to see. I loved the signs that show the different species as well as the brief history.

Dunbar Cave and the surrounding area is a great place to visit. I am not sure if the cave is allowing visitors inside anymore but even if they aren't the place is worth a visit. They have hiking and a great pond on the location and a small historical exhibit inside of the welcome center.

This is a beautiful hike & the cave is (literally) 50 degrees cooler than everywhere else. Nature's air conditioning! The pond is nice. We saw turtles. The photos near the cave area are cool of the parties that used to take place in days gone by. Too bad the cave was closed when we were there.

Bring your own flashlight and walking shoes. You will need a jacket because the cave stays around 50 degrees year round.
