“Great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

This cave was different then the others in the area in that it was created by vertical waterflows. This resulted in some interesting structures and deep caverns. The guide was outstanding, explaining the geoligy with more detail then we have ever heard before on a cave tour.

“A nice cave on top of the hill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

This was a average sized cave with some taller formations in the area. They had a gift shop that was small. The staff was nice. The structures around the cave need to be remodeled. The cave itself was interesting. The tour took a good hour and had some unique formations that I did not see in other caves. There were some narrow passages and may be difficult for bigger people to get around in. If you are passing by I65 this is a nice rest stop to make. The area had some restuarants and other attractions.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2008

We were traveling to visit family and decided to take a detour and go through a cave. I must say that the people were very friendly. The guide was knowledgeable and even seemed to enjoy my son’s constant questions about everything. The cave itself is beautiful. I must caution those that are overweight, there are some tight spaces you will need to fit through to see everything. Also the stairs are very narrow and a little steep. Over all, we really enjoyed our trip through the cave.
