A great way to spend a family afternoon if you're looking for something local, educational, and not too complicated. A quarter mile walk through the cool caverns was most welcome on a hot day. Great for kids, but leave the babies and toddlers at home-- if you can't touch anything, what fun is that for them? My daughter found it... More

It is a beautiful cave, we were just expecting it to be bigger.... Maybe it was our mistake... Tour guide was very nice and it took around 20 min to see everything.

What a nice way to escape the east coast heatwave. It was a cute little cave and the people working there knew their stuff. A nice afternoon in a 50 degree cave.

I have taken my family there as well as visitors over the years... It is a good outing that does take some time... It's a great place to visit on a hot day...

The place isn't a big place but enough to get information on caves. It was 1/4 mile in n back out. At the end you can go Gem mining for about $4. The they have a small trail you can walk on. Went with two nephews 9 n 10 they loved it

I love quaint tourist attractions (as opposed to big corporate or government run tourist attractions.) It gives me a chance to soak up some local color and see how people were entertained before TV and the internet. Pennsylvania has loads of them - particularly caverns and caves. That's only the reason why my rating for Lost River Canyon isn't higher.... More

This is a relatively small and sparsely decorated cave however, the quality of the tour was excellent. The guide was great, very friendly and knowledgeable, the admission price was reasonable, and the prices and selection in the gift shop was great.

This place and the whole speel they say hasn't changed since I was my son's age. The stuff inside is old, and you wait for a tour. The cave is beautiful and creepy. I love the chapel area and learning about the queens room.

The day we went there were school groups there.. In between the school group tours they took my husband and I down. it was just us and the guide. We had a wonderful guide he was very smart and really explained everything. We may of gotten a bit more being just us and him. We had more of a discussion... More
