We found this park when we were staying about 45 miles away at a resort. We took a day trip there and found it amazing, although small. There are two different cavern tours each is $10.50, Srs. $5. We took the longest one with all the steps, it was beautiful. The lighting within the cave was done so tastefully. The... More

Totally worth the drive! We drove up from Fairfield Bay with our 5 & 4 year olds. They were a little small to appreciate it, but we adults loved it. Incredible size inside, wish we'd had all day to take all the tours. Drip stone was described as the basic tour with all the beauty, the longer tour with the... More

Two adults and a 10-year-old and 4-year-old found this to be a great experience. Well worth the price!

We visited 8/13/16 with another couple. We did the Discovery Trail tour it was a little over 11/2 hrs very well worth it! If you don't like stairs do not do this tour. Our guide was wonderful! From the moment we walked in until we exited the cavern we were in awe at the beauty. We have visited other caverns... More

We stopped here for a nice family stopped and was completely surprised by the beauty of this cave. Aaron was our tour guide and he did an unbelievable job. He was loaded with information about the cave and could tell he loves his job. The cave includes two large halls that are lit with strategic lighting. Could not have asked... More

Wow. This was an amazing. My wife, eight year old, six year old, and myself really enjoin the tour. It took about an hour and a half and you half to take 700 stair ( mostly down). So worth it. Our tour guide was great. If you are near here then don't pass it up. Be sure to go to... More

I highly recommend touring the caves. They offer several different tours, each with differing levels of difficulty, and guided by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We took the Discovery Tour which was listed as challenging, due to its 700 steps, but didn't find it tiring. The cave and its numerous chambers were extraordinary and well preserved. The park service does a... More

The caverns are not beautiful. We went into the one hour tour and while interesting, not outstanding. The children loved it as they haven't been in a lot of caverns. Make sure you pick up your tickets when you arrive. I was told not problem and we had to wait until the next tour. Cannot call ahead for reservations -... More

We actually found this on our way home from Branson, Missouri to New Orleans, LA. The brown sign caught our eye and we decided to take the trek. Didn't realize it would put us three hours out the way total. It was well worth it. The cave is amazing, the guide was informative and funny, and it was 58 degrees... More
