“A bit hokey, but enjoyable nonetheless”
Review of Spook Cave

To me even if a cave is small (as this one is) it is still always an enjoyable experience. Add in the fact that you do the tour on a boat and it makes it an even more enjoyable and unique tour. Yes, the formations aren't as spectacular as many other caves. Yes, the tour guide could have given more in-depth scientific information. The tour was still a fun time though and the guide was very enthusiastic. If you are near the Prairie du Chien/Dubuque area, I would definitely recommend making a stop here.

I realize that taking tourists on a boat ride through a cave is a scrappy summer job, but the hokey narritive coupled with contrived drama was a bit much. Stick with the history and geology and this would be much more enjoyable.

Not much to see, a bit of a waste of time. A brief boat ride into a small cave.

Nice lake & beach in a hot summer. Cave is pathetic. Go see Meramec Caves in Mo. instead.

Over priced gift shop.
