  • I always forget how long of a drive it is to arrive to the caves but once you arrive... there are great hiking trails & of course the kids just love the caves. All you need is a good pair of sneakers, a phone flashlight and a steady hand to wander in for a peek. Unfortunately they're doing some work on one of the caves so at this time you can't go too far in the bottom one. It's still neat for the 12 & unders. Even the adults that have never been!
  • Great time caving, Did the 3 hours session. Tour guide was great and was a nice introduction to caving in general. nothing to crazy. Slide was a big disappointment. Would recommend 5 hours if your going to do it.
  • A great place for an adventure year round. Many options for different ages and ability levels. A beautiful place staffed by passionate people.
  • I mean to explore the caves but I was not prepared for how dark and wet it was inside. Still I had a great time hiking along the hill side and peeking inside the caves. Bring proper boots and clothing. Recommend a hard hat and lights of course.
  • Amazing spot. Best all around camping in the whole area. Access to tons of outdoor activities.
