Went to West Virginia to go white water rafting, and wanted to find an additional day trip. We took our 4 kids ages 18, 16, 13 and 8. This was a FANTASTIC experience for all of us. Our guides, Steve and Mara were so knowledgeable and gave all of us the confidence to try all of the challenges. Steve took... More

Went to lewisburg to visit my girlfriends son and we all went to Lost World Caverns. Such a cool place. Both with the constant 52 degrees in the cave as well as the entire set up. The owner and his staff were beyond friendly. The self tour takes about 45 min we took 2 hr. I recomend going.

My wife and I decided to take the wild tour and boy are we glad we did. Seven hours in the cave learning spelunking. What an experience!! We were told ahead of time that anything we didn't want to do we could take a "go around" but in the end we did it all (we're in our sixties so if... More

My hubby and I decided to book the "wild tour" over the standard, self guided tour. The owner was helpful and funny, and our guide, Jon, was fantastic.. Fun and both a knowledgable and experienced caver. The tour was way more physical than either of us expected and we were quite sore the next day, but we would take the... More

Stopped here for a break on a road trip. It's a small cavern you can get through in a hour or so. Some of the walking is very tricky so it's not really for very young kids or people with mobility issues. They give you a sheet with 10-12 descriptions of the marked sights you will see. You can go... More

If you're looking for Luray Caverns, this isn't it. It is a Mom and Pop operation, sort of, and you guide yourself and take your time. There aren't a ton a colored lights, cutely named formations, simply one of the many caves in West Virginia with interesting stalagtites and formations. Self-guides, safe, cool and unrushed - a good place to... More

In historic Lewisburg which can take a day to walk and eat and see it all. It's a very homey place and the owners of the caverns are so nice and informative. Very comfortable, out in the country atmosphere.

If you don't like to get dirty the wild cave tour is not for you. We went a day after a bad storm, and it was really muddy and slippery, but we had a blast. Caving is one of those things you have to experience at least once, and I would definitely recommend going to Lost World for your first... More
