We did not use the campground facilities. The cave tour was very informative and the guide was nice. He did an excellent job explaining the cave history and surrounding area. I recommend the cave tour.

You get what you pay for. Very good price for the area. Small sites - actually our neighbor's slideout about touched our awning. Sites are dirt and grass and can get a little wet. Convenient to the interstate.

We came for the campground, which has nice long sites, but they are very close together. We agree with the other low rating regarding shower house. There us no way we would use them. The store area is also old and could use some updating....More

I'm not sure where these 5 star ratings are seeing. But Dixie Caverns is a FAMILY OWNED Cavern. For many years they have allowed the property to go down hill. It's very hard to understand why anyone would let such a landmark deteriorate. At one...More

Fun for the kids (and adults) to explore Dixie Caverns. We have been a few times and it is always enjoyable. The caves and formations are really something to see. The place isn't flashy by any means, but the people have always been nice.

Are strollers permitted?

Response from Shannon L | Reviewed this property |
It would be a nightmare to bring a stroller. There are a lot of stairs, uneven surfaces, small areas. There is a space you can leave the stroller at the top (before entering the caverns).
is it a free of cost visit how long it takes to go all around ?
