They always reserve a portion of cave tour for walk-in visitors. You may have to wait but you should not have a problem getting on a cave tour.

I would expect that after Labor Day, it would be very quiet and very pleasant. If you are staying overnight, please try to stay at the Lodge as it is quite unique.
