  • Amazing history, lots of info by our guide Eric, and just wonderful family run business! I have a horrible knee and was suffering back issues. The path was almost all level, easy to navigate, and was so neat seeing so much. Kid and wife's only complaint was they wished we could deeper, but I would have been unable to continue that far in. The panning station was a blast!
  • The Civil War dinner and cave tour was fantastic! They told fascinating stories about cave natural and cultural history including recent discoveries of historical "graffiti" and artifacts as well as research which have helped piece together the different uses of this unique cave. The owners are clearly passionate about the cave, exploring it a mile in themselves through small crawl spaces and involving family members of all ages to help out, including in the presentation. Their research efforts have resulted being approved to add the cave to the National Register of Historic Places just this month. Also, the dinner​ was very good! We highly recommend next year's tour. We would go again!
  • My son loves this place. Went on a field trip with the school and he wants to go back! Wonderful staff!
