Our family of three made a visit to Organ Cave a week or so after historic flooding hit the area in late June. We weren't sure if the cave would be open so we called ahead. There was minor flood damage to the man-made structures, but they fixed the issues quickly and were open for business. Arriving at the cave... More

Must see if you are in the area! Our young but knowledgeable tour guide lead us on a about 2 hour tour of the cave. Such a beautiful piece of underground history. Slick spots, but not too bad of a walk. Price: $16.50 for adults- discounts given to military/police Gift shop

Check out their website for an impressive list of options for your cave tour- most of them wild/adventure. Our guide, Troy was able to customize our tour to our desires - stay dry (since it was cold outside) but with a variety of walking, crawling and squeezing. We saw lots of neat gypsum flowers.

Most of the other reviews are spot on. I was fortunate to have been handed a flashlight to aid with footing and viewing the sights in the middle of the pack (15 to 20 people). I would highly recommend for adults to bring flashlights to contribute light to the walkway. Some effort is needed for the lengthy combined tour but... More

No sure how much of the information provided was factual, but the cave was well worth the visit. The caverns are hugh, and the initial stairs are steep. When starting down the stairs, remember one has to climb up these same stairs on the way out. No crawling was required, but some of the passages were low, maybe 5 feet... More

We visited organ cave with our family - ages 10, 13, 22, 25, 51 and 52. We chose the gypsum passage expedition. We were blessed to have Troy with us, along with 2 younger guides, to share their love of these caves. Being led by people who were passionate and knowledgeable about caving and the things in the caves was... More

My 12 yr old son and I went on a caving expedition at Organ Cave last Saturday. It was the most incredible experience I've had. While Organ Cave doesn't have all sorts of amazing formations, the adventure of bouldering in, over and around a stream and in side passages was beyond my expectations. The cave is peaceful, but the boulders... More

I planned a Saturday adventure for my husband and I. We drove 3 hours to come to the cave. Although there are lots of caves in West Virginia, I choose this one because of its role in the Civil War because my husband loves history. The walkway and steps were rather slippery because of all the rain we have gotten... More

Very interesting tour. Definitely an activity for the whole family. However it is not ADA constructed, it's slippery in spots and I did not feel there were enough lights. The owners were very knowledgeable and nice.
