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!!!

We drove to specifically go to the cavern from where we were vacationing in Summersville. Absolutely worth the drive. Amazing tour that was self guided. Definitely recommend touring!

My family did the wild cave tour. It was the highlight of our trip. Steve, one of the owners, was our guide and he really put in an extra effort to make sure our experience was fun. I was also impressed with all the photos the guides took throughout our trip and the meal at the end. If you are... More

Fantasic day trip, we got lucky it was only my daughter (15) and myself for the wild tour. Our tour guide Kyle was awesome, we got to pretty much do everything and explore at our pace.

Very beautiful cave, a bit tricky drive to get there so use care. Tours are self-guided, you're given a flashlight and 'cheat sheet' of the highlights you'll be seeing. You can go at your own pace ... stairs involved, wear appropriate shoes and also clothing for 55-60 degree temps.

It was a good day trip from home. The entire place was clean and well kept. The one employee we came in contact with was pleasant and helpful. The cave its self is impressive on the short self tour $12 for adults 10% for vets. May have to go back for the long guided tour, a bit pricey $70 for... More

I enjoyed this cavern so much more than Mammoth Cave. My first self-guided tour. They provide flashlights. Wear a sweater and pants even if it's hot outside. Lots of winding steps, some wet and slippery spots. Lots of ooh's and ah's from the kids. They enjoyed looking for Batboy.

Great find in our backyard! This is a fun place to visit. Self-guided tour but COLD. IT is 52Degrees in the cavern so you may want a sweater. In addition, our elderly parents had a little trouble navigating the stairs and climbs. It is WELL BUILT and accessable, however, need to be able to get up and down stairs. The... More

It took us a little over an hour to see the whole caverns. Very pretty. Lots of different lights to enhance the beauty of the various formations. Good place even with little kids

My family (mom 45, dad 47, kids 16 and 15) went to Lost World Caverns for spring break. Kyle was an outstanding guide. He was patient with mom especially when she had to crawl on her belly and not turn her head in one tight spot. Everyone had a great time. The kids did the more difficult parts in two... More
