This was an amazing experience. We weren't honestly sure what to expect when we saw the signs for this place, but we were so happy that we went. The caves were great and the underground waterfall is something that I am very happy to have seen. The best part was that there were no huge lines and the group was... More

Initially I was a little skeptical about going here. I asked a bunch of people about Secret Caverns before going, but everyone said they have never been here and they knew nothing about it. I thought how can this be any good if no one has been there but I went anyway thinking I'd ask questions and leave without going... More

The Secret Caverns caves was a wonderful experience. It felt quite adventurous to explore the caves with narrow passages, low hanging rocks. Our tour guide was very informative and funny. The entire tour lasted for less than an hour. The place is damp and the floor is a bit slippery, so I would recommend wearing shoes that don't slip. Apparently... More

Visited the caverns with children 6 and 3 years old. It is not a large cave, much smaller than the neighboring howe cavern, but this one is much more natural and authentic. It has this untouched look that we really enjoyed. And the waterfall at the end was absolutely breath taking! Worth every minute. My 6 years olds had a... More

We were taken here by our tour guide and went down for $18. The cave is very small and there is nothing in it but a small waterfall in the end which is probably not natural. If you have seen any decent caves before don't go in it's just a waste of money and time.

Before you arrive here, I recommend to bring sturdy shoes. The caves inside have an amazing ceiling structures. Just be careful that you don't hit any sharp points of it. To reach the waterfall, you must walk down the slippery stairs and ramps. In between, you will see some specific marked structures that have names; just look out for the... More

Got a chance to visit the Secret Caverns with family. What a nice surprise of a find while on vacation in Cooperstown. The Caverns were discovered by looking for missing cattle - we were told - during our individually guided tour. The young local guide did a heck of job showing us inside and out. It's really improved with steps... More

This was a great cavern to see. Very natural feeling with the narrow passages and low rocks. You can touch the walls and the waterfall underground is amazing. We were lucky to be in the front of the group but I can imagine that people further back could not hear. There are a lot of stairs and they can be... More

We stopped here on out way to Niagara Falls and I was a bit skeptical upon reading that the only way down and out of the cave was 103 stairs. I had a 5yr old with me and was under the impression that the stairs would've been to much for her. Needless to say it wasn't and we really enjoy... More
