  • The place was so cool! They teach you alot and it people working there are so knowledgeable and friendly. We will definitely be going back! 
  • I have lived in WI all my life and had never been to this place. The history behind how these caves were discovered and made is fascinating and our tour guide was helpful. Went here on a day when it was 90+ degrees outside but once in the cave if was around 50 degrees and felt perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in hiking and nature as well as people just looking for something different to do.
  • Wow, this was a really cool cave experience. I've been to a couple of different caves out west including Lewis and Clark - which is huge. This isn't nearly as big, but it has some pretty amazing formations. You can get the full "cave" experience in about an hour, plus cool off if it's hot outside!
  • Very cool place. Great for grade school kids. The video is unecessary, but short. The caves are much bigger than you'd expect, beautifully preserved and the tour guides are knowledgeable. We were two 30 year old women and enjoyed it, but there (paid) are activities for kids too. Gift shop has lots of fun stuff, although know of it is actually from the cave since it is protected.
  • This was our final stop in Wisconsin for our family vacation. The kids really enjoyed walking through the caves and my girlfriend and I did as well. Our tour guide was very informative and made sure that everybody had a chance to ask questions and he interacted with the kids very well. After the tour was over we took time to walk around on some of the trails and around the big barn and enjoyed the beautiful flowers and nature surrounding the park. There are lots of cool things to buy in the gift shop and they have photos available of you for $9.99 which isn't bad. If you really want to have your kids be surprised and have some fun, buy the bag of sand that they can go outside and sluice. One of our kids do this and he got the smaller bag of sand but still walked out with a handful of shark teeth and other bones and artifacts. He was very pleased with getting that as his thing. Overall a great tour and a fantastic place to enjoy the beauty of God's creation
  • This is a beautiful place! The video and tour are great. We liked the reasonably-priced gift shop and sluicing for rocks.
