I can't say enough about this attraction. My husband and I went on a spur of the moment trip and decided to stop at the caverns on our way. We drove in a gravel road and weren't sure what we were going to find but we're absolutely amazed by these caves. It is a self guided tour so we took... More

This cavern was very nice. The grandkids just loved it. You got to go threw it at your own pace and by yourself. It was very clean and very friendly people.

The morning after our arrival, we decided to take on this adventure. My husband loves this kind of discovery...but I am always extremely trepiditious of being underground. I felt like we were in the movie Journey To The Center of The Earth. In the beginning you walk down these cement ramps into all sorts of steps and climbs. The area... More

Great fun. Very nice and friendly staff. We enjoyed wondering about taking pictures. We wanted to buy bat boy t shirts but had to get a hat instead.

If you are adventurous and want to try something different take the wild cave tour. It is truly a "Wild" experience. You will leave very tired but with a new appreciation for the world around us. Kyle our guide was a lot of fun and really got the kids involved. We went through some amazingly tight spots and emerged covered... More

We did an unexpected stop here on a road trip into Virginia. We were looking for something to get us out of the car for a while. We had 2 adults and 2 girls 18 and 10 all of us enjoyed it. It's not very large, but well lit. It's a self-guided tour, they do provide you with a numbered... More

I was really skeptical as to if the cavern would be well maintained since it is self guided. I was super impressed with how well the cave is maintained. One of my new favorite commercial caves. The staff are very friendly. We were given a flashlight and a cave info sheet to refer to. My 4 yr old was even... More

Clean, well lit, good family place. You can go through at your own pace. Have to keep typing because reviews must be at least 50 characters and I am very concise.

We were just passing through the area and saw the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to stop and were not disappointed. We didn't have kids with us but the were several in the cave with parents and they really seemed to enjoy the tour. There are lots of steps. The fact it is self guided was no problem and we still...
