We have been to other caves with stalagmites and stalactites but Alabaster Caverns is unlike these caverns. The tour does a great job describing how the cave was made and the unique features of the cave. We saw lots of bats sleeping, flying and swooping down toward our guide :). The tour moves quickly and at times we had to... More

The state park offers a lot of opportunities for hiking and sightseeing the unique terrain for this area. The main attraction, the alabaster caverns, won't disappoint either. These caverns are nothing like the Natural Bridge Caverns near San Antonio, nor will you pay the ridiculous fees like Natural Bridge Caverns. Alabaster Caverns are more unique gypsum/rock formations than stalactites and... More

Some of the trails for hiking are not clearly marked but certainly are fun. If you walk down the road to the trail with "owl cave" marked by one waist high pole - it's fun and can lead back to the park ranger station. TIP: call ahead to get your cave your reservation (we were here before noon at the... More

They give guided tours of the cave every hour, lasting about 45 minutes. There were 8 people on our tour. The tour guide has obviously worked there for awhile because her speech was canned, but knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions. The walkway in the cave was wet and slippery but their handrails help a lot. Wear appropriate shoes.... More

The caverns are very unique and have a lot of interested features that other caverns do not. I thought our tour guide was great, well-informed, with a dry sense of humor. The tour is timed and left some people in the dark with no light source because they don't allow any. I would've given the tour more stars if I... More

We arrived late afternoon here at the park. Staff was friendly and we took the 5:00 pm tour of the caverns. It was nice as it was our own private tour (since there were no other tour goers) with the guide. She was knowledgeable but I felt she could have been more personal and less preprogrammed like you would be... More

We were driving the back roads on our way to Colorado and decided to make a stop to see the Alabaster Caverns. It's not the most interesting cave I've been to, but it's worth a visit. It's a very wet cave that can be slippery in lots of places and also gooky Oklahoma red mud. Be sure to wear old... More

We visited for the Selman Bat Watch and also toured the cave. It's not that expensive but it is worth every penny. We had kids in our group ranging from 8 years old to 18 years old (plus adults) and everyone was entertained and walked away pleased. I wouldn't recommend touring the cave with kids younger than 8 or anyone... More

$10pp, 45 min tour, we had to wait an hour for next tour as they only take so many each hour. Guide was very knowledgeable, the lighting thought cave was nice, but path way is not for the unstable, elderly. Most areas are covered with wet mud, can be slippery, make sure u wear old shoes, don't recommend sandals. They... More

I can't remember our guides name she was very knowledgeable about the cave. We had an elderly gentleman in our group who needed some assistance. She slowed the tour down and it was very enjoyable! The no camera rule sucked since we couldn't even purchase any either. I thought the $10pp was a little high but, it was a nice... More
