This family owned attraction is a refreshing, unique natural cave nestled in the beautiful mountains of the Laurel Highlands in western Pennsylvania. Laurel Caverns are catacomb caverns, so if you are looking for large stalactite and stalagmite formations this is not the cavern for you. However, they are an excellent example of catacomb caverns. The owners take great pride in... More

This is a family owned attraction which I love to support. But, it is also a wonderful natural attraction. A great place to stop on the way home from Nemacolin Resorts.

BEWARE! Do NOT take the lower cave tour if anyone in your group is elderly or not physically fit. It will be quite challenging at a few places and will take about 3-4 hours. One wrong step and you are looking at possible brain or limb injury, with rescue times in excess of 4 hours. Now the good news for... More

Took the 3 hour lower Cavern tour after reading their website information and confirming a couple of questions on site. Hiking boots, jeans, sweater and gloves are necessary to keep you warm when you start out. Give your tour guide around 20 minutes and you will be unzipping your sweater and having an awesome time. The cave itself is immense... More

I took the Lower Cave Tour today and it was amazing. I am not physically fit person by any means, 195 lbs and 5ft 2in. I also have asthma. The tour is three hours long. Our tour guide was Justin. He was very full of information as he told us about different rock formations and made everyone aware of the... More

Was impressed by how big the caverns are, and we only took the one hour family tour (you only see a small percentage of the caves). They don't have the stalagmites and other exotic structures, but there are a lot of interesting rooms and shapes, and the size of the place is very impressive. The guided tour was informative and...

You walk on your own on the path and it is well lit. It is very extensive with many different views. It is a steady 58 degrees.

My husband and I visited Laurel Caverns yesterday and signed up for the guided Lower Cave tour which takes you down 45 stories into the caverns. This tour is very strenuous (I have muscles hurting today that I didn't even realize I had) however it was very interesting and highly recommended if you can physically handle it. You begin on...

I have to start by saying that I'm not the most agile or athletic person; nor am I the fittest but I do sporadically workout. The first day we got there we (my husband, myself and 14 yo son) only did the "family guided tour." I purposely did this because the next day I was planning on doing the lower... More

We took the last tour of the day so it was only a few people which was very nice. The cavern is the biggest in Pennsylvania and it's an amazing place to see! They offer a normal guided tour which lasts an hour long and they take you through about 1/3 of the cavern that is easy walking. Then there... More
