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

Beautiful formations and large rooms. I appreciate being able to go at our own pace and taking as many pictures as we wanted. Like all caves it is very cool. This one I would guess low to mid 50's. Some water will drip on you, cave kisses. Some slippery areas so wear shoes with traction. Cost, reasonable $13 adults $7... More

Cool place for an hour to hour and a half stop. Not too hard to find but definitely out in the hills. Don't be afraid to miss it because it is out from town a ways. Make sure you have good walking shoes and they are are non slip. There is a lot of stairs also. Just plan ahead and... More

Self guided tour was fun for us, we liked setting our own pace. We know about cave structure so we didn't miss a guide's info but if you don't know how cave formations are made etc you might not find this as educational. Don't follow your IPhone maps or gps, call for directions! They also have a mini museum with... More

I haven't been in a wild cave in several years and when I saw a tourist brochure I thought it will either be great or lame. It was awesome! Steve and Kyle were our guides and made the entire journey into the dark, tight, rocky, muddy, wet cave a total delight! After a much needed shower and change of clothing... More

Did the Wild Cave Tour. We went into this large cave system not knowing what was to come. Went into a large cave with lights and paths. Wonderful. Our guides Kyle and Steve said, " Over the railing and to the back of the cave." The start of our EPIC adventure. We went into the LOST WORLD. Only light was... More

I am partial as I grew up close to this and know how it was discovered. Of living caves, this is one of the nicest and in an area saturated with caves for spelunking. ?sp? A cool place in more ways than one.

I have been in many caverns and this was just as nice as any. There are a lot of steps down and of course back up so if you have trouble walking this isn't for you. I enjoyed the caverns and would recommend it for an afternoon trip. Cute story goes with it as how it was discovered. The temperature... More

Teens can be a difficult lot to please. This place will make them happy campers if they appreciate interesting rock formations and like to explore. I think it's worth a try 'cause sometimes it's not all about the teens. I love this place!!!
