I have lived in the Rockbridge area all my life and remember touring the caverns at Natural Bridge at least twice while I was in school. I'm an amateur photographer and decided today that I'd like to take pictures in the southern end of the county. It was very hot and storms were threatening. After I'd packed my digital camera...

Absolutely breathtaking! We went early in the morning when it first opened it was so quiet, beautiful and serene. My children 3 and 9 were amazed by the beauty also. It is truly a sight to see.

This is almost like a cave but is a cavern. We had an excellent tour guide and we werelucky to have only 4 in our group. The price was right because we had a combination with the Natural Bridge. Not as large as Luray but we enjoyed it much more. It is definitly very cool and damp, but beautiful.

It didn't have that many interesting formations. Luray Caverns were better. Luray was larger and had more formations. Not much else you can say. It's a bunch of rock formations in a cave!

This was my first visit to a natural cavern, and the experience was top notch. The cavern tour was well organized with a limited number of participants, and the tour guide (who was coincidentally named India) was very knowledgeable and generated enthusiasm about the caves and it's history. We even got to see cave salamander tadpoles! Must see place in... More

The Natural Bridge Caverns are the deepest caverns on the East Coast. They were cool to see, and very convenient after seeing the Natural Bridge. I've seen better caves and caverns. But, if you are going to the Natural Bridge, might as well add this to your day of exploring. Travel Tip: Show your AAA membership card to get a... More

While on a road trip, we took some time for the park and the caverns, both of which I recommend. These caverns are not as big as some, so no deep dark excursions, but it's still a great spot if you want to get out to move and stretch a little bit. I wish I had taken our guide's name... More

Having been to several caverns in the past, this one just is not impressive. They also need a mininum age. We had a one year old that came pretty close to crying the entire tour. Our memories will consist of a flow stone formation, a fine collection of soda straws, and a crying baby. And for clarification, we have two... More

We truly enjoyed the caverns. I highly recommend you take them in as well as the bridge. Just don't stay at the hotel.

We spent a weekend down in Virginia, and spent a day at the Natural Bridge attractions. I thing my son liked this place best out of all the other places of interest.
