I've been to other caves, so when I made the 2-hour drive from Charleston to Lost River Caverns I didn't know if it would be worthwhile. It was. The setting is somewhat surreal; if you're lucky you can see horses on the farm adjacent to the cavern property. The entrance road is a throwback to rural West Virginia--it is a... More

My great nieces (ages 17 and 15) and I just returned from our trip through West Virginia, and Lost World Caverns was definitely the highlight of our trip! Kyle was our tour guide for the four-hour exploration, and we couldn't have been paired with a more competent person. He was funny, encouraging, and knowledgable. We absolutely loved the personal challenges... More

We had some time to kill so we headed to the caverns (recommendation from my 9 year old nephew). My 5 year old son LOVED it! The average self guided tour is 45 minutes and we were definitely in there about 1 1/2 hours. We explored everything. Both boys had a great time! I will say this, I am in... More

My family and I enjoyed exploring the Lost World Caverns. You may want to use the website directions to get there because our GPS took us to a dead end. Also, the cave stays a constant 52 degrees so a light jacket may be in order. The trek around the cavern only took us about 25 minutes with a 4... More

This was one of the best adventures I have been on. From the moment you arrive, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The guides are very informative and helpful. As a first time caver, their jovial nature and patient guidance helped lead me through a few tight crevices and intimidating footwork. This is certainly not a tour for those... More

I'm so glad we stopped to visit this attraction. Very reasonable prices for tour and gift shop items. Kids had a great time. The owner or best employee ever gave us a lot of info on the cave and large display of fossils and added to a great experience.

I had time to kill before my flight so to the cave I went. On a busy day, or morning at least, since it was practically deserted by the time I left just afternoon, parking was a nightmare. Parking is essentially a free for all, so you can imagine when it gets busy parking is a headache. The cave itself... More

The staff were very accommodating. I am very claustrophobic & they let me look into the cavern before paying for my tour. I ended up taking the tour & was not dissappointed. The caves are beautiful. The self-guided tour allowed us to look as long as we wanted. The pathways were well maintained.

What a wonderful trip. The guided cavern hike takes you to places you have never imagined. The guides are very informative and focus on safety. They provide you with the helmet, gloves, knee pads and a light as you will need them to avoid a few bumps and bruises. Highly recommended!! They serve a great lunch, provide photos on CD... More

I have been to most of the show caverns in Virginia and none of them were self guided. I loved the fact that this one in West Virginia is self guided because you get to go at your own pace and explore on your own. You really do feel like you are an explorer. Because it is self guided, you... More
