I always love a good cave tour, or even an awkward cave tour. This one was just a little on the awkward side but still totally worth it. I always learn something, and it's always intriguing to visit something that was unseen and pitch dark for millions of years. This is worth seeing if you're in the area. Not the... More

Small in size but guides will spend enough time to explain and answer questions. Even on winter it is 52F - great right?

Recently went on the tour with some friends. I read some of the reviews and they are all over the place. Therefore I will try to explain what I think the tour is and is not. This is not a huge cave. It is NOT Howe Caverns nor Mammoth cave (I have been to both). I would not drive hundreds... More

The water level was lower than they usually experience however it was still much deeper than it appeared. What looked like 12-18 inches deep was really over 30 feet . Because you were able to see your reflection in the water it looked shallow. The gift shop was really great . I bought myself a 14 carrat gold with genuine... More

Absolutely awesome experience. Nate was very well informed and a perfect guide. You can't beat the experience for the price and the gift shop was one of the most reasonable I've ever been in. A must if you're in the area

This was a great experience. The 45 minute tour is very interesting and the caverns are really something to see. I took friends from out of town to see this during the week and it was a fun thing to do them. It's good for the young and/or the old. The caverns are really neat and the surrounding area is...

Not worth the pricey tickets. A decent tour in terms of length. Not for young kids. Nothing else to do there and nothing in the town . Do the pioneer mine tour instead

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
