Virginia is full of show caves, most famously Luray. But there are many more. And this is one of them. I have been to many of them and no two are alike. This one has some spectacular formations in it that show that Virginia's caves are not interchangeable. It is worth visiting each and every one of them, including Skyline.

Decided to surprise the family for Mother's Day and really hit it out of the park with this trip. The cavern tour is really enjoyable, while it's not the biggest, etc....it is just the right length at an hour. We also did the train ride and mirror maze. Both of my kids (11 & 4) had a blast in the... More

If you are jaded by caverns filled from end to end with features then this is the place. A simple and less slick operation than the bigger caves, much of it is just a big pothole worn by an ancient river, with a few 'tites and 'mites here and there; but interesting nevertheless as is any cave. The glory of... More

My son and I, along with the rest of the Scout Pack visited Skyline Caverns on a very chilly Saturday morning. Not really knowing what to expect, we arrived and waited for the rest of the Pack to show up. While we waited we walked around a very expansive gift shop filled with gems stones, touristy t-shirts, kitschy souvenirs, and... More

Kids and I made an impromptu stop here on the way back from Luray Caverns on a quiet April Monday. We wanted to compare the two and were driving by anyway. The site looked very 1950s which was part of the draw in us stopping along with a desire for some ice cream. The gift shop area did not disappoint!... More

Don't let the price scare you away - You walk about a mile underground going down to over 225 feet under the surface. Our Guide James was just outstanding super informative with a corny sense of humor that even made this father of 3 girls laugh and learn.

I thought it would be a tourist trap, but it turned out to be a great surprise. Our tour guide was passionate about exploration, and he made it really fun to learn about caves. We have a fit year old and he was a little freaked out at first but our guide made him feel welcomed and he really enjoyed... More

There are many caves to explore in Virginia, but Skyline Caverns is a cave you should definitely put on your list. It has formations unseen in any other cave in the world.

I went to skyline caverns with a group of 9 people ages ranging from 50 years - 5 years old. We all really enjoyed it. It was reasonably priced (you can print a coupon from the website). Our tour guide was funny and let us tour the caves at our own pace. The tour lasts about 1 hour but there... More
