  • We visited here and had a lot of fun. I will say the attractions for the kids need some work. A lot of the wood is rotting and the attractions could use a fresh coat of paint. The price is extremely h...  more »

  • I really enjoyed our trip to Desoto Caverns. Our tour guide, as all tour guides, was full of corny jokes and informative details of the history of the caverns. I thought there would be more of a hike, I was almost hoping so, but it was more of a tour of one large cave and a tiny path not wide enough for wheelchairs. I think in the future there are building a more adventurous tour. I sure hope so.
  • We stayed here one night on our trip (April 2017). It was a perfect distance between our spring break destination and home to take a break. The camp site (14) was full hookup (30amp) and level. They had a couple of bath rooms with shower, toilet, and sink. The staff was all friendly and polite. We enjoyed our guided trip into the cavern and the kids enjoyed the other attractions, too. Unlike others, I was happy to see a place like this recognize its creator.
  • Great place for family with kids. Stuff for older kids like water balloon fights and water gun maze etc. And stuff younger kids can do like panning for gems and playing on pirate ship play house and splash pad. We also camped here in our rv and enjoyed biking through the park at night and splashing around in the creek.
  • Feels a little like a money grab with high admission prices to the main attraction. The cave itself is breathtaking but the tour guides try to draw your attention to rock impressions that vaguely look like celebrities. Their laser light show is cool but unless you like blaring christian rock then the music may detract from the experience.
  • Absolutely a complete waste of time and money. $93 for 3 adults and 1 child to get a bunch of fake history and preached at. Christian laser light show? Has nothing to do with the cave. Also alot of yhe "rock formations" looked to be man made. And the water hose going back to the "waterfall" was simply amazing. Do not waste your time or money.
