The gravel road to the cave is a bit rough, but the tour was easy. Lots of interesting formations Folks running cave and gift shop were quite nice. Gift shop had a large selection of rock or other related items for sale at fairly reasonable prices.

This is a very accessible cavern (not wheelchair accessible). The cavern is very large and good to visit. I was in the area for work and it was a nice stop.

Heard about this from other friends at a conference at the Greenbrier, they had taken their adult kids the day before and thought it would be a neat outing. They were right! We stopped in Lewisburg and had lunch on main street then headed out towards Lost Caverns. Watch the signs, they are marked pretty well and there is a... More

Just left and we had it was amazing. So glad we took the time to do this it's so beautiful to see what nature has created. We did the regular walk through tour would have loved to have done the big tour where you are guided and have to crawl and climb much deeper into the cave but my husband... More

The cavern was extremely large, easy paths to walk on, with handrails. Incredible stalagmites and stalactites. I can be somewhat claustrophobic and I had no problems enjoying the walk through the cavern rooms. There was a lovely grounds to rest and picnic around the visit.

The formations were great, and the self guided tour was well signed. A plus was the gem panning- the bags were well-'salted' and the guide was able to tell the kids all of the different stones, fossils, and even arrowheads.

What a great experience! Staff were very nice and friendly! The caverns were amazing and very easy to navigate. The clerk even asked us if we were AAA members and gave us a discount.

Our family came here after a trip to the mountains in nearby Summers County, WV. It is a fun little activity that took only about an hour. The cave contains a lot of history about the formations and how the cave was discovered. Neat that you can see the original cave opening where the explorers repelled into the cave from... More
