  • You definitely need walking shoes if you take the long route. Tall people should plan on bending over took get through some of the smaller areas. Overall a nice way to send some time in your day. Military personnel get a small discount.
  • The staff here is beyond friendly, so awesome and knowledgeable! Caves were awesome and the entire place was very clean! Highly recommended!!! Staff could not be better!!
  • Awesome cave, great tour. Family owned.
  • Be ready to walk a bit. But definitely interesting and worth the price.
  • We took our three children, ages 6 and under. This was seriously the most family friendly cave we have been to. We opted for the shorter tour which was perfect for our two year old, and were greeted at the end with a free crystal mining sandbox experience. The entire building and mining area have undergone a beautiful renovation.

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90. If you want a scenic escape, look for a bed and breakfast, campsite, or cabin in the surrounding Black Hills National Forest.
