  • This little stop was a cool place that is still run by descendants of the original owners. I'm not sure if they always are there, but an informative person collected our entrance fee (nominal), gave u...  more »
  • We were unaware that this site is only opened in the summer. It was right on our route so we decided to check it out. We had been looking for quirky or offbeat roadside attractions all along our trip ...  more »
  • This is a pretty interesting piece of history turned souvenir shop. If you like quirky road stops you will enjoy this. As a plus the souvenir shop is on the less expensive side.  more »

  • If you like touristy road side attractions, you'll like this place. Quirky and kinda fun, says I! It doesn't take long to explore all of their exhibits, but that's a good thing when it comes to fitting into a vacation plan. Well done cave entrepreneurs!
  • Closed Saturdays. If the phone recording says, " currently open Saturday" it's a lie. Don't bother driving out there
  • This is a zero star stop. It's nothing but a tourist trap. If you google the cave you see cool pics. What you get in reality is a cave that has been covered in cement. You also get a room full of artifacts from all over the world. Utah has a rich culture. There's no reason to have anything allegedly from Australia. There is a room that was supposed to have been a saloon. Now there's a Steelers sign and picture of John Wayne. Pretty sure that's not authentic to the saloon. Another part of "cave" has rocks that are allegedly have naturally glowing minerals. While I would say some are legitimate, some look like they have been painted sloppily with paint. We could not find a single redeeming feature to this stop and the ten dollars we paid. I seriously recommend you keep driving. If you want to see a real cave go to Mesa Verde NP or Carlsbad Caverns.
  • Nice on your way... Cool things to look at like cave art and trinkets. Also a bit of a history your of what it used to be.
  • It's a large cave turned into a museum by a Mormon cowboy. The exhibits are an eclectic collection of whatever seemed interesting, with particular focus on Indian relics, dinosaur fossils, and fluorescent minerals. The most interesting items are in the gift shop. It's not worth a special trip, but if you're passing by it's a fun place to stretch your legs.
