  • We chose this cave because it was advertised as the easiest to get around in, even as an octogenarian. We learned that it was used by the miners as a place to live during the "Gold Rush". There are ma...  more »

  • 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.
  • Tour guide was very good with kids, and quite insightful. We went on a slow Sunday afternoon and had a blast with 4 kids all eager to explore the cave system.
  • Very neat cave experience!!!
  • Agreed, this place is a bit touristy. But it's pretty amazing so it's worth it. My favorite part of the cavern is seeing the water running all throughout it. My son was three at the time and he really enjoyed it. (Daddy felt the need to hold on to him REAL tight at times.) I was even surprised how well my son did when they turned off all the lights (to complete and utter darkness) while they told the story of an early explorer. You should note that the walk up to the cave is paved, but very, very steep. They give you plenty of time to make the trek, but it would likely be a tough one for many. Everyone in our large group made it. Eventually. All in all, suck it up! It's worth checking out.
