This was one of the side trips ever! The cavern is amazing, and the self-guided tour allowed us to go at our own pace. Very good signage let us learn about the history of the caverns and the area. The owners were very nice, and the gift shop/museum was fun!

The self guided tour is great for kids, not too long or dangerous. Walkways with rails and signs. Lighted up, not too dark at all. Parents, don't be afraid to take the kids based on others reviews of the 4 hr tour, u can choose the short tour. I took a 13, 9, and 1 year old that i held.... More

Really enjoyed the caverns! We spent 45 minutes on a self-guided tour. It was not a hard walk but could be slippery in spots. Wear shoes that can get dirty. Well worth the time. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and the dogs! There are picnic tables if you pack a lunch or snack. There is also a very nice gift shop.... More

This is truly one of the best side trips ever. Without a doubt the best $12 ever spent. Absolutely beautiful with an element of history and education. Steve was a wealth of knowledge and extremely friendly. I expected a hokey tourist trap and was totally surprised. For the younger and more adventurous plan on the all day tour.

High ratings for fun on this trip! Our guides Emily and Kyle were great and the kids and adults alike loved everything about it...especially getting muddy to the core...

Just the right size for a cave tour, not too challenging for an middle aged couple with a 6-year old grandson who was thrilled with it all. The gift shop is more like a museum; we could spend hours just in it!

We went here on a Saturday in July. It was about 85 degrees outside but of course in the cave it was a balmy 52! It's quite a hike down into the cavern itself but well worth it. We went on the self-guided tour and it took about 45 minutes. Beautiful stalagmites and stalactites and yes, if you've forgotten that... More
