  • I visited here for Memorial Day weekend, and enjoyed it. Like others have said, you have to get there early to ensure that you'd like to get in on the guided group tour. The uplands self-guided tour wasn't much to see, but it killed time while we waited for the guided tour. The waterfall and the cave were both very beautiful sites to see.
  • This place could be nice, but the service and how they operate was a huge disappointment. We had a Groupon and tried several time to call to make a reservation with no answer. Once we got to the park it is first come on the guided tour, even getting there an hour before all tours for the day were full. Since we do not live near by we were unable to use our Groupon. We paid the the self guided tour which was mostly a joke in a field. We did get a few nice pictures.
  • We started this year off with our First Day Hike here at Westcave. We arrived around 9:15 for the 10 o'clock tour. The gates opened promptly at 9:30. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The scenery was breathtaking. We hiked the guided tour to the grotto and cave and back. We packed a lunch and had a picnic under the trees at the tables. Then walked the upland trails. We will definitely be back.
  • Beautiful! Worth the drive! Take the guided tour - very knowledgeable guides!
  • Wasted a big part of the day and $14. Wanted to take the guided hike, emailed and try to pre purchase tickets and was told that wasn't offered. It's pretty much in middle of nowhere so didn't want to drive out just to be declined. Was told to arrive 45-60 mins early so it didn't book up. Well, got there almost 90 mins early just to be safe. Sure enough, sold out. If I had driven 15 mins, I wouldn't care.. but I invested better part of a day for nothing. So we were offered the "uplands" self guided hike for $7/each. Did it to not totally waste the day, boy was I wrong. 20 min walk through a field with a path mowed in it. What a waste of a day. The guided hike might be nice but if you're going to only have a couple hikes with a small people limit, allow some type of reservation system so people don't drive out for nothing.
