  • We had a park ranger take us on the tour of the caverns and she was great. A MUST Stop if you are interested in Nature, ecology, the environment, or just want a rare treat for the whole family. Fun and education at a reasonable price, hours of enjoyment
  • The caverns were beautiful! Caverns do require extensive crouching one must be nimble. Don't wear a back pack unless you want to be reprimanded by the sassy tour guide. Also, they do turn the lights out on the tour for a minute :o
  • Great camping discounts. Two week campground stay limit. Clean restrooms with laundry. Sites have water, electric and sewer connections. Campground Hosts are friendly and helpful. The blue hiking trail is scenic. Great place to relax.
  • I approve. Good place to go. This is a hidden gem in the country. Lots of privacy, shady area, and the staff is awesome. This place is far off the beaten path and just an awesome place. Highly recommended that you take the cavern tour. It's worth the money, and not really expensive. When you're in the area eat downtown on State Road 90 at Jim's buffet. You will enjoy it. Home cooked food and a reasonable price. Buffet style or order from the kitchen .
  • The cavern itself was beautiful. But be careful of who you have as your tour guy. I was led by a older gentleman that spent the entire tour preaching about God, "the artist of the cavern", and trying to disprove evolution. It just ruined the tour for me. I was there to walk around, enjoy the view, and learn about the science behind the caverns.
