This is the first cave I ever visited in Pennsylvania, and this one is the closest to me. I think it's interesting that no one knows where the river goes. The gift shop is also great. There is another cave 45 minutes west called Crystal Cave, if you want to add to the trip.

The forecast called for a washout on what turned out to be a lovely day, but we'd already planned our trip to Lost River Caverns. My daughter's boyfriend recently earned his degree in geology and loves to talk about what he learned, and what better place to let him shine than in a cave? We were greeted at the entrance... More

The tour guide was insightful and had a good sense of humour, on the whole the cavern was pretty boring and for $12.50 per person pretty expensive for the 30 minute tour.

Like many people, I confused this stop with the Lost River Cave which I had seen so much information about online (turns out that's in Kentucky). But name confusion aside, this cave doesn't offer a lot in terms of beauty or scenery inside the cave itself. The cave is a polar opposite from what you'd come to expect from Luray... More

Nice educational trip, good price for admission too. We took a guided tour, our guide was very informative and held everyone's interest. The cave is always about 50 degrees so bring a sweater and its best to wear sneakers since there are some puddles down there.

I have visited Lost River Caverns several times. When friends visit from other states they are always interested in seeing it and I've had a great time with each guided walk. It's not a huge place but there are quite a few different formations and things to see. I love the little chapel as well. I took my father here... More

I've been to a few non national historic caves. If you have been to those it would not be fair to compare these local family operated attractions. Staff - young tour guides (like summer help age). Our guide did a very nice job giving us the history and directing us to points of interest. Having seen all this before I... More

The upstairs is a mini museum with everything from taxidermy, guns, mini sewing machines, crystals, meteor, and even a dinosaur. The cavern is small but still nice to see. Tour guide was funny. They have a wonderful gift shop, gem mining and nature trail.

Pleasant visit!! Staff is very nice Many cute little souvenirs to choose from is better if you wear closed toes shoes, is not forbidden to wear open toe shoes but from my own experience I would have been more comfortable with closed toes shoes 😉

My two boys liked this stop. My 8 year old was more interested than my 5 year old. It was neat to lean about the different formations and history of the cave. The cave is only 52 degrees so definitely bring a jacket. The also did the gem panning there which they loved!
