“beautiful, but small cave. tour guide was just ok.”

Went to the cave today. It was really beautiful, but very small. My kids loved it. The tour guide did not have much information for us and didn't know the answer to a lot of our questions. He seemed like he didn't want to be giving the tour. I know they have a limited budget there -- but if you don't have energy and are excited about showing it -- then why would i recommend it????

12 dollars each for an Emo Tour Guide to show you a sink hole the size of a small dining room. We were informed of the size by the staff at the place we were staying at, after we drove off quickly after learning the cost...Seriously 12 dollars for a sink hole cave...pass..Go to Maquoketa Caves! We went to the movies instead, 12 dollars total.

Enjoyed the cave tour - relatively knowledgeable tour guide - about $12/adult.

Don't wear nice clothes! You may get dirty like I did.

This cave is pretty cool. It's not as big as some of the caves in Missouri, Tennessee, or Kentucky, but if you're in the area it's worth a visit!
