We went here when we couldn't get a reservation at mammoth caves. There were a lot of neat formations and my kids really enjoyed the tour. I would recommend for families because its the perfect length of tour.

Newly renovated and opened cave. Family owned and operated. Very small tour size. Lots of formations and neat rooms. A very unique cave. Must see.
