Being new to caving, this place is perfect. The ‘lower caves’ tour is challenging, but not impossible for a person with limited or no experience to caving. The guides are really good and explain things like history in detail. Bring a change of clothes and prepared to get wet :)

I had so much fun repelling here. They also gave us a nice tour before and after. We all got to repel three times! The staff were wonderful and knew what they were talking about. It was great!

A friend and I did the upper caving tour and were very impressed. We have been to several caverns before, but this was the first one we had been to that allowed us the opportunity to explore the undeveloped parts of the cavern. Doing this tour was not easy. There were definitely times that we were on our stomachs crawling... More

This is a clean, well marked attraction off of Route 40 but it isn't overly special or impressive. The staff caps tours at 25 people, but it's really too large of a group for a seamless experience. Our group had 25 people in it and a lot of time was spent shuffling around so everyone could see and hear. The... More

Clean, well-run facility, with good signage from Route 40. Great views of the valley below from the parking area. We went on the Traditional Guided Tour and had only a short wait for it to begin. There are no stalactites or stalagmites in these caverns, but the rock formations are still interesting. Most memorable for me was when they briefly... More

Our guide started out the tour with "According to evolution, these caves are 350 million years old, but according to the bible they are 600 years old." That was the only bit of "science" our guide had to offer. The rest of the tour consisted of her pointing out how this rock looks like an alligator and that one looked... More

We've been to the caverns twice, first with our children and now with grandchildren and it was great. We took the basic tour both times; had a terrific guide both times; and, found the length of the tour just about right. It was an easy walk; the guide was very good; she answered all our questions and demonstrated concern for... More

We took the basic tour and it was fantastic. We had a terrific guide who walked us through an easy pace. She was very informative and a lot of fun. The basic tour was mostly an easy walk with a few slippery spots. It was cool inside but I didn't need the sweater that I brought. I wanted to take... More

Small but interesting cavern. Privately owned and operated with guided tours as the only point of access. There is a one-hour family friendly walking tour and two more intense tours for ages 8+ on the upper cavern and 12+ on the lower section. The general walking tour descends 80 feet, and is a cool 50 degrees throughout. Adult admission is... More
