A fun and interesting time, perfect for a first-time cavern visitor or those not sure about going underground. The museum itself is eclectic, just worth a browse if you're waiting for your tour (you'll find Daniel Boone's father's rifle, a sword used in a Valentino...More

Sometimes you have to venture underground when the weather is sweltering outside. Great tourist attraction with the coolest growths in caves and along walls. Caution: wear traction soles like sneakers; I wore sandals and slipped twice!! It's COOL down under! Take time to peruse the...More

We visited the cavern with our 8 and 11 year olds. It is very small but interesting although it does not have any particularly dramatic or pretty formations. It is not on the scale of Luray or Shenandoah Caverns which we have visited fairly recently....More

We were out enjoying the countryside and found this small cavern tour. We arrived in time for a tour and shortly thereafter, we were 150’ below the earths surface. It is a small cavern but worth doing. It’s a short walk, kid friendly and educational....More

We stopped by on our way home from the Poconos. When you walk into the store, there is an overwhelming musty smell. We almost left. The five of us had a personal tour of the cavern. It was fine. Nothing much to write about. The...More

I was hopeful this would be a great experience, we had my grandchildren, ages 5 and 7, their parents and my husband and myself in our party. We had to wait quite a while until we could get in. They have a museum and gift...More

I was more than pleased with this cave tour. Partly because of the many stalactites and stalagmites. Other caves I’ve been in did not have as many. And since water was continually dripping, I knew they were growing. No one would call this a huge...More

This is a nice place to visit. We went on a hot day, but there was plenty of cooling off inside the cavern, bring a sweater to wear on the tour. The tour was about 20 minutes or so, and was very nice. Staff were...More

We've only gone a couple of times but we've always enjoyed it. It's really fun to do with kids and is a great way to cool off on a summer day. It's equally fun to visit on a rainy day or occupy yourself in the...More

Being a local we usually take a trip down here once every few years. I always see something I haven’t seen before. Like most cavern tours it will be damp and cool but on a hot summer day it’s a good place to cool off...More

We spent about 2 hours there and that was fine - I think the tour was about 60-90 minutes and then time in the interesting gift shop/museum
