  • Small cave but the guide have us a great history lesson on how it was created. The tour itself was about 45 minutes and is inexpensive as well.  more »
  • Awesome experience. Family owned. They also have a little nature trail with trivia questions at points throughout. Great gift shop. Kids get in for about $8+ and adults are $12+. Educational and fun. Cool half day family activity if you grab a bite near by.
  • Nice place to visit. It'll take around 1.5hs to visit, unless you want to spend more time in a very well supplied gift shop. It's not a difficult circuit inside the cave, but with some little steep, and/or wet places, You have handrails all around, so even a person with with a little difficulty to walk will be able to do it, if you can go up and down stairs and ramps. Nice stalactites/stalacgnites. Great to go in any weather, but you may want a light coat, it's around 52°F inside the cave.
  • Our tour guide was super enthusiastic and did a terrific job. It was an educational tour with lots of interesting information. The caverns are beautiful. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Great stop if your in the area. 30 Minute tour- kids loved it. Great gift shop!
  • On par in pricing with other small caves yet with notably fewer features. While the splice of a underground river with no known origin or destination may excite the imagination, it does little to entertain the eye. Which is probably why one of the most interesting aspects of Lost River Cavern is a natural shelf featuring large stones collected from other caves that contain minerals with fluorescent properties. The other notable feature being a reasonably good looking wall of flow stone, where a number of couples have chosen to get married beside. Our tour guide however was excellent despite the material she had to work with. Additionally, there is a well priced souvenir shop, should members of your party often insist upon on getting something to commemorate your travels. Otherwise this cave may be worth skipping.
