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!

The Lost River Cavern is a great place to visit with the family. A bit kitschy but fun :-) Beware that it will cost about $50 for a family of 4 if your kids are older. Our tour guide was full of great information and the cavern was interesting to visit. There is also a short nature trail that you... More

We went with a smaller group and were included with other people, the tour was informative and interesting. It is good for a couple hour visit or stop on way to another activity

We were looking for a good way to escape the heat and still be tourists so this was a great choice. We have toured about 3 or 4 other caves and enjoy comparing them. The neat thing about this cavern is the "lost river." Our guide said the water level was low due to drought, but it was still impressive.... More

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.

Thank stajka
