This is a very nice cave tour you do in a boat. We had a great guide who was amusing and had good info! When she tells you to stay low, make sure you do! A fun thing to do!

We enjoy camping at spook cave. We haven't actually done the cave because it's a bit expensive and when your already camping, it can get to be pretty expensive. But the kids really enjoy camping here. I would recommend a remodel of the bathrooms though,...More

Absolutely love Spook Cave Campground. Very quiet (except for the 2-3 times a day the train comes thru which is really fun to see). Clean restrooms/shower facilities. Cute little general store onsite. Perfect for all age groups!

Great guide that offered lots of details & history about the cave. My older parents and teenage kids all enjoyed the experience.

This is a good place to visit, and the boat rides through the cave are very interesting. Beware that you may have to bend over or in so you don't hit your head or hit the wall as some of the passageways are very narrow.

The campground is immaculate. We were lucky enough to get a campsite next to the creek and 2 campsites away from the waterfall. Listening to the creek was so relaxing. The grass on your campsite is cut and soft not to mention the size of...More

No those are the only two cabins that do not have a bathroom. You use the main bathroom/shower house a short distance away, thanks.

The tour is 35 minutes in length, yes there are restrooms. The tours usually leave after a 20 minute wait at the longest. Labor Day weekend can get busy with the possibility of a little longer wait in the afternoon.
