Sorry but this place was really dirty. We liked Lost World Caverns alot better. I think it's because this one is privately owned and they don't have the budget that Lost World does. The owners seemed nice though.

I was a bit disappointed with the formations in the cave. There are a few nice ones especially the one at the end of the formation part of the tour. The cave is very large and has a extensive history. Make sure you wear a jacket. The cave is one of the coldest I have been in it is about... More

This cave was okay but nothing special. Our guide took off so quickly that it was hard to keep up or hear him. It had some Civil War history, but I think the mannikins that were put in there took away from the realness of it. It made it seem more like a set-up for tourists. I don't believe we... More

I don't know how we found out about it originally, but this is one historical site we will visit again. This cave played a very big role in the civil war. If you are into history or even just into a beautiful cave and wonderful people, do not miss this. Good for kids 6 and up. My son (6) loved... More

Real gem of a cave. Outstanding tour with Civil war history. A must to see if you are visiting in the area.

We originally had booked the Gypsum Tour. The website said some tight spaces. When we got there the owner told us it was almost entirely crawling. No thanks! So we ended up having to pay an extra ten bucks to do another tour, the overlook tour. Troy guided us through the cave for what ended up being around 4 hours.... More

I enjoyed the entire tour! We had an amazing guide. He was very entertaining and knowledgable about the caves. The caves themselves were beautiful and very interesting to get to see. Overall the entire trip was spectacular

Recently I went to this cave after going to a different one in Lewisburg. Actually my sisters and I stumbled on this one and I am so glad we did! It was so much larger and more interesting. It took several hours for the tour. Be forewarned to wear warm clothing and comfortable shoes for uneven ground. We did feel... More

This is a very interesting cave tour for a reasonable price. It is a guided tour and took our group about 2 hours total. The cave is magnificent. Another reviewer mentioned some historical inaccuracies which may or may not be the case but nonetheless the cave is huge, spectacular, and well worth seeing. The passages wind around and are mostly... More

We love caves of all types. We purchased the double tour -- the civil war portion and the formation tour. After descending the stairs the young guide said his flashlight was not working properly. We asked him if he wanted to go back and change his batteries, he said no because our flashlight was working fine . Initially this did... More
