We found out about this cave when we saw a brochure at the grocery store. Caves are always a fun thing to check out, especially on a hot day because they are consistently in the 50-60 degree range, and they are always different. No two caves are the same, so even if you've been in twenty caves, the twenty-first won't... More

Scenery was spectacular and the guide was very knowledgeable. One of the best caverns I've been in! Cool "beach" area with a spring you can drink from. Bring a bottle with you!

The outside seems uninviting, but don't judge this book by its cover. The cave is interesting. The stream that runs through the whole cave is so clear, and we got to taste it at the end of the tour. One side of the cave has a lot of rock formations while the other side seems more flat and smooth.

Really cool trip seeing a beautiful cave. Not a real hard walk. Neat to see something virtually hidden in the valley.

We had great time at the caverns. Our tour guide Garrett was extremely patient and knowledgeable. It's very cold so bring a jacket! Especially if you're from Florida like us.

We are from Chicago, staying nearby for the week. At the suggestion of front desk clerk, we skipped Forbidden Caves and ventured out to this lesser-known cavern. We are SO GLAD we did! Terry, our guide, has been exploring the cave since he was 16, so one can only imagine his fascinating tales. He took such great care with our... More

The caverns were gorgeous and our tour guide, Lauren, was super fun, charismatic , and informative. Her added personal insight about exploring different sections of the cave was especially interesting. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and come back ourselves!
