“Excellent for Boy Scout Troop experiences”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

My son's troop visited the first weekend of December 2011. It was about 10 degrees outside but the cave was in the mid-50s and humid. The front of the cave is closed off with a door and the cave is over 1000 feet deep (horizontally that is) and probably 300 scouts could camp inside.

I did not spelunk like the boys did, but they got filthy and all stated that they had a great time.

We were warned ahead of time that water would be dripping on us all night and to put tarps over our sleeping bags, but we had no problems. We had a bigger problem with condensation on the underside of the tarps.

Food is included with the camping and was of decent quality and quantity. Food service was very organized.

The owners were very friendly and hospitable.

There are compass courses (though not compatible with First Class requirements), geocaching, a campfire at night, and a wagon ride as well. You can also get a guided tour of the cave in the afternoon.

There is a game room for when the scouts are bored of spelunking. Additional short order cooking is available between meal times.

All in all, a good time and I think the price was reasonable at about $50 a scout for camping plus four meals and a snack and other activities.
