Nice- quite the ride to get there- I found that it was not as good as the ones I visited in Ark. I found this one boring - the walking was a bit- some may find it difficult

We have been to almost every cave in the Midwest and this one was definitely a disappointment. It is a very dry, boring cave. Hardly any formations. You just literally walk in a dark dirt hole. Not much to see here, so don't waste your money.

Another local perspective, we heart these fun caverns. It's like a throwback to family vacations in the 70s. Its a pretty drive out of town and inexpensive family fun. Look for local coupons for this and nearby Deer Farm. The caverns are off the main road near English Mountain with pretty views along the way. The parking area is even... More

Would have been awesome, but sadly no one alerted us to the fact that on December 5, they would be closed for the season. Luckily we were driving that direction anyway but heads up future travelers- it's closed.

We try to tour any caves or caverns on our travels.....these closed Nov 30th but will be open again April 1. Rather off the beaten track, plenty of parking and nice gift shop!. Tours are led and the lights do go out so if you are super claustrophobic.....might be a no go....they do warn you and let you get situated.....really... More

While staying in Sevierville, we had some time away from the "tourist strip" to enjoy some of the beautiful country. We had a great time on the tour with a knowledgeable tour guide. Lost of beautiful stalagmites and stalactites to view. Little bit of Tennessee history at the bottom. Well worth the price. On another note: there is a place... More

It was very off the beaten path. I guess considering the story behind it. Since it was used to hide illegal moonshine back in the 50s. We arrived just as the last tour was starting. The internet page for them didn't have any prices listed so I was very much surprised that the tour cost $14 for adults $13 for... More

We had not stopped here in close to 30 years. The caverns are very interesting and it takes about an hour to walk through. Our tour did have way too many people in it.

It's always cool to go underground. These caverns have history and the tour guide did a good job of keeping everyone's attention. The price was $15 per adult (12+).
