  • The Cave of the Mounds was fabulous. It is a true gem in our state of Wisconsin. The tour guides were engaging and knowledgeable. It was a fascinating experience for our whole family.  more »
  • Have lived a couple hours away for my entire 60 years and finally decided to visit. My husband and I really enjoyed the cave tour and the grounds, even in early spring on a cloudy day when the tempera...  more »
  • It is as cool as it can be. and when I say 'cool', it means the both way. The cave inside is pretty cold and beautiful as well. I wonder how those people found and dug it inside back in those days when all these modern equipment were not there! Hats off to the adventurers.
  • Nice size cave to tour; fun windy paths and some narrow areas. But still well paved and easy walk as long as you can make up up and down stairs also. Tour takes about an hour.
  • Pretty cool cave. Very pricy for how it went down. The guide shuts the lights off on the stuff before you get a chance to look at anything. As a photographer trying to get good pics and they shut the lights off to scurry people through the tour. Id say the average amount of time the lights were on is like 4 or 5 min. Just enough for the guide to spout out crap most people already know then they hurry you down the line shutting the lights off as you go. Never got a chance to really soak in the experience
  • 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!
