Unlike the "cave tours" that are lighted with paved walkways. Cascade is a more primitive tour. You are in control of your flashlight. There are places that you may have to duck or squat. It is a living cave, so if it rains, you might...More

This cave is about 125 ft below the ground surface. Many of the passage ways require you to stoop for 10 yds or more. The geologic formations are OK, but we thought the best aspects of the cave were the fauna. There were quite a...More

"Stingray" was a great tour guide. He answered all of my questions and seemed to know what he was talking about. If you're in the area this cave is definitely worth checking out.

No there is not a handicap ramp that I saw. This would be very difficult to traverse. There are 120 steep steps in and out of the cavern and in many places it is wet and slippery. All would be advised to wear sturdy... More
