We visited here in October and the crowds were small. We learned a lot and it was great to hike the short trails and explore in the depths of the caves and caverns. A few underground waterfalls and nice effects with some of the caverns lit up with colored lights. You need to watch your footing on the slippery rocks... More

The trails through the park are very scenic, but it is a bit expensive. The guided tours venture through the caverns and are quite nice. However, if you visit and venture through the park on your own, the experience is a bit limited.

We took the self-guided tour. It gave us the opportunity to go wherever we wanted to and as long as we wanted to. What a great deal! At first, we followed the river, walking in the woods. The river was unreal. The sun shone on it and it made the river quite attractive. At times we even saw waterfalls while... More

This is a pleasant attraction in upstate New York. It’s a self-guided walking tour, and includes primitive trails and many uneven stone steps. Walking sticks are available (for free) for those who need them. I wore ankle braces and went slowly, and didn’t have any problems. The visitors center/gift shop actually sits on top of the bridge. And you can't... More

Great place to explore with or without kids. Fascinating history, well planned and preserved. Self guided tours are the best, and this does not disappoint. Plus it is a gorgeous area!

We are seniors who really enjoyed being outside and seeing caves, grottos,and potholes.The tour was self-guided. It was an educational experience that would be wonderful for families and children. You need to be able to handle walking up steps and stone steps for a distance. It looks like there are kids programs during the summer.

We had planned a trip to a spot further North in New York. We decided that it wouldn't be worth out while to travel that far and make it to our destination before closing time. Instead, we detoured to the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves. What a great decision!! Not really sure what to expect, we began our hike. We... More

I got to visit this place on the way back from New England at the end of May 2016. It's not a "show cave" with a tour guide. And it doesn't have limestone formations like most of the caves in Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland. It's more like a nature hike with a walking stick. There is a big marble... More

How do you get a 12 year-old to learn something on his summer vacation? Bring him places like this. Either a guided tor or self-guided, each has its benefits. All sorts of rocks from all over the world are available for purchase. He bought two geodes: one was cut in two pieces, the other remains intact--for that special occasion when... More

I go every year that I visit Lake George. This place is absolutely incredible. You won't believe what you see behind the store, your just not expecting to see such beauty. The massive amounts of waterfalls. You get a map of what to look for and see, every detail is included, so much fun for adults to children of elementary... More
