  • We booked with USA Raft and it was awesome. It was the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Dani was great and really made it fun. If I could do it again I definitely would!  more »
  • We had a great time in the cave. The owner is very nice and charges $8/person. You can stay in as long as you'd like. We spent about 5 hours inside and saw many beautiful formations. Or you can do a guided tour with one of the local rafting companies, these cost extra. It's pretty easy to navigate but very slick. I suggest boots with a soft rubber tread. A rope would be handy in a few spots.
  • Could become awesome destination place to visit with the right investment and development. Under developed but worth seeing. You will need at least hiking boots and flash lights. PS don't forget the TP
  • Amazing guides at River and Earth Adventures. We took a group of Boyscouts and Dave the lead guide was incedible with the boys. He was just the right mix of "not too strict" and "relaxed" enough to make sure that the boys had an awesome time. Highly reccommend!
  • The most difficult obstacle is finding it. Last time I went, GPS still hadn't figured out how to direct one to the correct address. For those successful, however, Worley's Cave satisfies. Regardless of one's caving skills and experience (somehow it's easy yet hard enough), Worley's is worth it. As with any natural cave, do not underestimate it - be equipped with helmet, light (and back-up light), food, water, first aid kit and footwear designed for rocky, muddy, uneven & sometimes slick surfaces. Though Worley's is the longest known cave in east-Tennessee, it's not a complex cave & can be navigated without too much difficulty. Most known caves have been heavily vandalized (graffiti, broken formations, etc.). Not so much with Worley's & compliments to the diligent efforts by ownership and responsible cavers.
  • Real caving experience. Plan for 3 hours of getting dirty and wet crawling around and exploring! Tour guides made it a safe and learning experience
