This was the best thing we have done so far on our vacation. It is Fall so not real busy which was a plus. Made it through all caves including the Lemon Squeeze which was the hardest. I highly recommend this young and not so young.

They Do A Great Job

The wooden deck trails are well built and well maintained. This is a cool interface between nature and the built world where the constructed walkways make it easier for people to visit a rugged aspect of the natural world. We live local and enjoy areas like these on hot summer days, although this one is not as cool temperature-wise as that deep ravine attraction a little farther north.

So much fun! We weren't sure it was going to be more than walking thru some rocks. Pleasantly surprised at how much adventure, small spaces, crawling, long caves! All with lighting as needed and wooden walkways and stairs. Great experience with 11 and 13 year olds!!

I took my 3 grandchildren - ages 6,8 &10 - perfect day adventure. They have asked their mom to take them again. Nice placed not over priced. Also a good place to go when you want to social distance.

Lots of fun!

The caves were great to explore! They were a little bit more challenging than we had anticipated but it was a wonderful adventure. Wouldn’t recommend for people with knee problems or a bad back, but lots of fun especially for kids and young adults.

Family Fun

A family tradition. This was a favorite spot for my family when I was little, now we were able to bring our kids ages 5-7. They had a great time! The caves are incredibly accessible, well lit, and fun. A great way to burn off energy and spend half the day outside. Helpful staff, beautiful grounds and a clean picnic area. We are looking forward to our next trip soon!

Fun activity!
Jul 2021
I took my three grandchildren to Polar Caves. It was close to closing time so some activities near the entrance were not happening. We enjoyed climbing the boardwalk and going thru most of the caves! My middle one was very unsure of a few of the caves so we went around!

We always do a stop at the Polar Caves when we visit NH, but unfortunately, we ran into a real piece of work in the gift shop. There is a heavy set girl with short brown hair that runs around the gift shop making sure every item is exactly where it belongs, and is sure to make your kid feel like crap if it isn't returned. I asked if there was a water fountain, and she looked at me like she just smelled a fart and said "No". Nasty rude@#$$-. My 8 year old daughter took a stuffed animal and hid it so no one would buy it when we were touring the caves. We told the kids we would buy a souvenir when we left. Well, this nervy, uptight, rigid witch asked my daughter if she was planning on buying the stuffed animal, my daughter was scared of this girl and said no. She said "well, that's not where it goes.". My 8 yr old isn't an employee there. She wanted to make sure she could get this stuffed animal,she wasn't making a mess of "your" gift shop which is, by the way, full of kids. Polar Caves, do yourself a favor and hire someone who actually likes people and kids. This chic was just weird and rude. She watched my kids like a hawk when we came back in and dropped more money at this establishment. We were ready to tell this degenerate off for putting a crappy note on our visit. She needs to get a life and a different job if intimidating young children is her way of having power. This girl seemed to be "in charge" of the other teenagers there. Taking your title a little too serious. Get a job where you don't need to deal with people. Thank you so very much putting a crappy note on our visit. Other than this thing screwing up our visit, everyone else was pleasant and the caves were great.
