  • I visited California Caverns with my grandson. We found this cavern to be intriguing and different from Moaning & Mercer Caverns (fewer stairs) & we felt more like cave explorers even on the basic tou...  more »

  • We did the walking tour and it was easy.. it was about 70 degrees down there and 100 outside. My five year old son had no problem walking the stairs. Pictures and videos won't do justice to this place...  more »
  • Wet hair with a class field trip. Kids had a great time. The caverns are beautiful and loved the gold panning
  • The tour seemed a bit short. But we blew it by going late in spring. The bottom caverns remain inaccessible due to flooding until later in the summer. So schedule your visit for after floodwaters receede. There aren't flash floods to worry about. The water table rises and falls seasonally.
  • 2/3 of the caves underwater. Needs some work. People who work there are friendly and helpful.
  • This was good starter cavern for the kids. Ages 8-10. They had never been in a cavern easy walking, few stairs. A few tight walk throughs but for a very short distance. Be warned: the last part of the road is dirt & pretty much one way if you are in a large RV. I was driving a 31' RV only had to share with a car. It is a VERY TIGHT road. Took about an 1.5 hrs for the tour.
  • Good for the whole family.
