This is a cool place to visit, no pun intended... well maybe!? Temperature inside is 52 degrees. Lots of interesting formations to enjoy on a self-guided tour. Some climbing to be done. But most people can easily do it. Many interest in formations to see.

My group did it in 30-40 mins (they love climbing and such!!) All loved it! The rock formations and beauty of what our Earth naturally creates are the things they talked about the most afterwards. Definitely worth exploring!

During July 2018 we visited four different caves and by far the Lost World Caverns were the best. Not only are the Caverns still alive (lots of dripping water) they are self guided so you don't have to worry about holding other people up if...More

Self-guided cavern tour with a flashlight. Really didn't need light because the cavern had lights. We spent about an hour there. The trail is well marked and interesting features are well-lit. A student group in front of us actually were going on a cave trip....More

A relatively easy cave to see formations. They have built steps and have handrails to make it pretty safe. Remember to take a sweater.

I would have to agree with all the recommendations NOT to bring your dog into the caverns. It was very slippery and she could easily hurt herself.
