Drove 750 miles to see this place , it was closed down for repairs, no running water and still charged a fee. (No bathrooms for four days) As for the fifty for seeing the bridge.....go some place else. What a sad vacation.

This was an attraction just by itself. Just go underground and visit this attraction and you will see beauty of these caves.

I really enjoyed these caverns. They were one of the most colorful I've been in so far. Some places didn't offer much headroom for my husband and he had to do a lot of ducking (the height was perfect for me though). You descend more than 34 stories down so expect a lot of stairs and sloping and wet floors.... More

The bridge has an associated talk that lasts about 25 minutes and was very informative. The natural landmark was very impressive. The pictures don't really capture how high the bridge is. You really feel dwarfed standing under this bridge. The experience may change as this becomes a state park in the not-too-distant future. The staff that was on-hand was extremely... More

This was the end of summer trip with the grandkids. It was a great trip for ages four through 12 and everybody loved it. The ticket to Natural Bridge is for two days so we saw the evening drama and came back the next day to see the bridge, walk the trail, go to the Indian village (kids were impressed)... More

It was a gorgeous day in the summer we went here. Awesome site to see as you turn the corner. Walk out to the falls was a little long for what was there. Can spend about 2/3 hours total. If your traveling and need a break , nice stop.

Been to so many larger caverns this wasn't worth the steep walk. If you are over 5'10 you will be bent down most of the walk or hit your head.

Caverns were nice, the Bridge tour was nice and the light show at night was beautiful! However the Natural Bridge Hotel needs some renovations. Roof had leaks and plaster hanging down, bathtub finish was coming off at drain and would not take a bath in it, debated on even taking a shower in it. Breakfast was very nice.

This past weekend we took our entire family to the Natural Bridge and to the Caverns. The Caverns are a short drive from the Bridge. We enjoyed them---and it was a good learning experience for the grandchildren to see the formation of the areas beneath the earth. The history of how these were formed and discovered is very interesting. If... More

We were on our way to Washington and decided to stop by. If you are thinking about going, I suggest stopping by any of the lovely rest areas on the side of I-81 where you can pick up a 5 dollar off cupon for this. In fact, we bought the combined ticket (Caverns and Bridge) and had five dollars taken... More
