Our second visit to these interesting caves

Lehman Caves are very beautiful and the tours are handled well . The guide took his time and did a great job of answering our questions. We hope to return again in the future.

We came to NPS Great Basin on our to St George, yes long way around but worth the drive. Had nice interpret program and lot of history. When you start to drive up the hill to Lehman Caves watch for wildlife.

The cave tour was awesome! We had a small group and our ranger, Anne, was very knowledgeable and entertaining! The tour kinda breezed by and was filled with imagination and wonder. We missed our reservations on the previous day for the Grand Palace, but NPS honored the tickets and allowed us to exchange them for the Lodge Room. I was... More

This cave gives you lots of tites and mites to soak up in 90 minutes. My favorite were the parachutes -- hard to believe people crawled around in here with candles for the 1 mile stretch. Pace of the tour is good and there are lots of photo ops. This is the only guidd nature hike available in the park... More

This was a fantastic cave tour. It is a fairly large cave, with lots of different geological features. I highly recommend of this if you're in the area

I was not expecting much here but I was happily surprised. It is a small and intimate cave with lots of formations. The house specialty is shield formations. Thick, disc-like structures emerging from walls at various angles. I had not seen these before elsewhere. If you're heading to Great Basin then Lehman Caves should be done; it's not like there...

It might sounds longer, 90 minutes for Grand Palace Tour, but actually is not. Time flies really fast. We were concern if our 6 years old can't make it, turned out she enjoyed herself too. During the busy months (summer) please book in advance. I booked a few weeks in advance (mid June) and lots of visitors who didn't book... More

We took the Lehman Caves 60 minute tour. I was expecting to go really far down into the ground based on going into to Mammoth in KY and other salt caves but it's really shallow and level. The caves are lit for the tour. The ranger was very knowledgable about the structures. My son and daughter enjoyed it. We hoped... More

Lehman Caves allows you to take a walk on the dark side while visiting Great Basin National Park. Book reservations if you plan a summer visit . Other earthy spectacular formations await in the cave. It is cooler than the outside, but it's not cold. Your crew can enjoy the theatre films and exhibits if you don't have to wait... More

My husband & I took the shorter tour & thoroughly enjoyed it. Our ranger/guide gave an excellent talk on the geology and history of the caves. Some of the young children on the tour loved the surprise appearance of a bat or two.
