Raccoon Mountain Caverns is located just 1.3 miles off of I-24 at the Lookout Valley exit (#174), and is less than ten minutes from downtown Chattanooga. Visitors are presented with a cave in its natural state and our 45-minute (+/-) Crystal Palace...more

Husband and 11 year old went on the cavern crawl and loved it! Just an FYI, plan on using the oldest clothes you own, as it’s easier to throw them away rather than wash them. Also, I have a bad knee and did the walking...More
Took the 2hr Canyon Crawl with guide Justin. If you're looking for the next step up from the normal cave tour, this is it. My 8yr old son and I had a blast, climbing, crawling, sliding, and even log rolling our way through the cave...More
Raccoon caverns was a beautiful cave. We have been in many caves, guided and unguided, and we really enjoyed this one. The guide was friendly, and the whole experience was very nice. The tour seemed a bit rushed. Adding 5-10 minutes to the tour and...More
Our family visited today. My children loved gem panning! We went on the cave tour and had a great time. My children were fascinated and full of questions which Darius, the tour guide, answered with enthusiasm. Overall it is a beautiful cave and the guides...More
We just got home from our Spring Break vacation in Chattanooga. We did all the local activities and this was, by far, our favorite. We are a active family that enjoys a new challenge and likes to see each other succeed. Our guide for the...More
Our son that is 12 was very hesitant to take this tour. His little sister that is 8 was ready for the tour! I have to say about 10 minutes in our 12 year old was begging to come back and do the longer, more...More
A friend of mine and I decided last minute to take a break from homework and come to the caverns/campgrounds. We chose the Echo Tour (~4 hours) which was absolutely insane and fun. We are so sore but in the best way. Jasmin was a...More
We had a FANTASTIC experience, we really appreciated the respect and love givin to the historic caves. Jasmine was our tour guide and she was SO informative & we could really tell she loves her job! It really was the perfect mixture of extreme, exciting,...More
My sister-in-law and I did the four hour wild cave tour. It is challenging to be sure, but the tour guide Ben was terrific throughout the tour. I would recommend this to any adventurous people looking for a great experience.
We were the last tour of the day. Just the 2 of us. Can't remember the guides name but he gave a very thorough tour pointing out things that he normally doesn't (or says he doesn't) for the busier tours. Saw salamanders and bats. Very...More

My family went on the Fossil Crawl Expedition. We sound about the same physical levels. I'm big throughout the chest and had to squeeze a bit but was fine. My 12 year old daughter also was able to complete the tour as well. It's fun, interesting and a great overall experience.

The crutches might be tricky as the cave is uneven.I would call first as they might not let someone on crutches take the tour. Downtown Chattanooga is close and wonderful. Coolidge Park is right on the river and has an antique carousel. There is so much to do in this area. Tn Aquarium, IMAX theater, Aquaduck tour, there are plenty of fountain areas for children to splash in. Just look up Chattanooga on trip advisor and lots of things to see and do pop up.
First off, don't miss this amazing experience! We booked one month in advance. However, when arriving we learned that we were the only two booked for our tour time so we had a private tour. I think demand depends upon... More
First off, don't miss this amazing experience! We booked one month in advance. However, when arriving we learned that we were the only two booked for our tour time so we had a private tour. I think demand depends upon season, so call them as ask them to be certain.
