Great for a day of physical activity. I'm not an experienced climber or an athlete, but I got around these caves with not much hassle. This was great fun for both adults and children. We also took a swim in the river nearby. The area was well prepared for the purpose, and close to the parking for people having problems... More

Perhaps I'm not a cave person, but I'm not a huge fan of this attraction. First off it's another Otonabee Conservation Authority production. Which means that you are using at your own risk. There is one sign which vaguely describes the "caves", you head to the caves, they are numbered by boards posted to trees above the caves. The caves... More

Spent a couple of fun hours exploring these caves one hot afternoon. Prepare to get dirty and keep a close eye on the young ones as there are lots of spots to fall in these caves but still easy enough for those prepared. Try to avoid going on rainy days or after a heavy rain like we did as the... More

I took my Son and Grandson for a day trip to the caves. We spent about 3 hours. The kids spent most of the time in the caves. Head Lamps are a must. I watched the cave activity and did a walk to the Look out, kettles and the beach. A change of cloths or towels to cover the cat... More

We came for the day and did everything we could, picnic on a great shaded area by the river, walked the crevasse' and the caves, our boys loved exploring, we walked to the look out and WOW. Finished our day with a relaxing dip in the river. Our 3 year old made it all on his own, kept up with... More

We went for the day with our two children age 8 and 6. The kids loved the caves and there was definitely some great photo ops. Nice little swimming area and a few spots to hike. A good day trip. We did not stay to camp overnight. You definitely each want a head lamp!

We spontaneously decided to go for a short weekend camping trip and it was better than I expected. The Indian river is great for canoeing and fishing! We caught 4 decent sized bass in 1 hour. The campsites were small however everyone was quiet and respectful. We didn't get to experience the caves but we definitely recommend camping here!!

There are 7 caves for you to explore. Some caves are linked. Kids loves spelunking and some caves are very tight and and you need to crawl but some cave you can walk. Great fun for the family

Only an hour and a half away from.home was this amazing park. Warsaw Conservation Area was full of adventure. We spelunked into 5 caves. Bring lots of water and light. Be careful of the broken beer bottles, these were an unpleasant sight and made it slightly unsafe since there's no light. We were lucky to catch it before the kids... More

load up the car pack a lunch and brings lots of hydration and flash lights. 7 caves from a quick crawl through to a big climb down. Plus walking trails, a beach and enough nature to shake a stick at. Don't plan anything around your trip here you will need a close day to do it all. I dont know... More
