A little out the way but worth it. Staff was friendly. Short walk to the cave, you cannot enter and there’s not a lot to see. The video inside explains everything about the cave.

We enjoyed a short stop and found very interesting information. The significance of the cave is very impressive; the digs have uncovered much knowledge of prehistoric cultures. The ranger gave us a demonstration of the atlati - a spear thrower device that can propel the spear a far greater distance. it was really interesting.

What a great site ! Interesting how that cave was used over several thousand years by mankind. I learned a couple of things that I did not know of their weaponry and how they farmed.

A peaceful area! Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the breeze and shade. Clean restrooms and you can also watch a short video about the cave. There are a few artifacts to observe in a nice indoor presentation. The lady/staff was helpful. It is a short walk on a boardwalk to the cave. Glad we stopped, the countryside was beautiful!

This site is an important archeological record of multiple cultures and I’m glad I stopped. It’s a lovely drive thru the countryside to get there. The staff are outstanding and the small museum and film are informative.
