We had Katie as a guide today and she did much to bring the caverns alive. She finally helped me understand the difference in stalagtites and stalagmites - the stalagtites are on the ceiling and they are holding on "tightly" to the top of the cavern! Thanks, Katie. There is a nice history connected to the caverns and great rock... More

You have to visit this place if you live in Virginia or are near by. While the whole hype and center built around is a little over kill for such a natural attraction it isn't as bad as some. The hike up the little walkway hill is kinda steep - consider taking the tram if you have any type of... More

Very refreshing and beautiful caverns. The guided tour was excellent and the walk was easy. When it's 95 degrees outside and 54 degrees in the caverns, it makes a great retreat from the heat.

The caverns were interesting, but the walkways were only suitable for the able. Not much difference in the areas once underground, but still worth a visit for the small fee when added to the 'bridge, entrance fee.

It has been sometime since I went here. Fortunately I have a great memory, the cavern is very clean. But it is no different than any other cavern that you go to. I don't know if it's worth the money$$ But Luray seems to be better Caverns, One good thing is, it's next to the Natural Bridge if you are... More

One of the smallest of the caverns we visited, pretty and interesting nonetheless, but a fraction of the size of Luray.

Royce was great...give the man a raise. He was the highlight of our trip to the natural bridge area. He was informative, calm and great with the two children in our group.

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.
