We loved exploring the cave with our tour guide, Erica. She was very friendly and informed and made the experience one we will remember. We loved hearing of the caves history and will definitely come back.

Being from Seattle, we had never heard of it. But we noticed modest signs along the road mentioning it's being nearby so we headed up. At the end of the trail we found a full parking lot of visitors on the fourth of July weekend and - unfortunately a sin up sheet for a guided tours That day, we were facing a two-hour wait for the next tour. We went up the hill anyway and sweet-talked the ranger giving the tour to allow us to tag along on the tour starting then. It was far and away the best of three cave expiration experiences in Washington(the other two being the Ape Cave lava tube behind d Mt. St. Helens and the ice cave near Lewis Falls).

Really enjoyed this tour. Appreciate that the state runs it as a free parks service and does not charge ( other than the discover pass ).

Our tour guide was informative and the cave was interesting. However, there was a fairly large group and the amount of cave that you actually experience is very short. It is a 'worth doing once' activity. The adjacent hike to the Canadian border was fun.

My son just completed his first year of 4H geology and gave a presentation on how a cave is formed. I was delighted to discover a cave not too terribly far from our house. :) Tucked in an out-of-the-way location, the cave is set up to highlight different formations. The tour guide was friendly and humorous. Admission by the carload was in our favor with a larger family.
