  • Went there with my grandkids. We were told there was over 400 steps. The first flight was steep. But for the most part, the steps were going down. We were the only people on the tour, but in guide gav...  more »

  • My first cavern and it was pretty amazing. The tour guide was very helpful and told us many facts. Do you know the difference between a cave and a cavern? Well you should go here and find out 😊
  • Spectacular views some awesome stories to hear from your tour guides. Service is really good with professional attitude. Also got a small gift shop on site so you can get your cool little gadgets for memories
  • Staff was nice and friendly. It seemed 95% of the campground was permanent residents. There are trees on the outside of the grounds with 1 or 2 on the actual grounds. Our fire pit and picnic table were right next to our black water drain on the back side of the camper. The site was mud that they tried to put some hay down over. The highway is right next to the campgrounds so it was noisy. Our view was either other campers or a parking lot. At the front desk we were charged 6 pieces of wood for $5.00, not bad. But when we went to night registration to get the wood the sign said 7 pieces of wood for $5.00. So if you need wood....get it at the night registration office. This is definitely a just passing through kind of place.
  • It's primarily an RV park but there are several spots for primitive camping that are ideal for solo campers ($12/person/night). Each tent site has a fire pit and picnic table and you don't need reservations - it's first come first serve. The park is well lit and I felt very safe as a solo female traveler. The caverns themselves are really cool and I recommend checking them out for sure. The only downside is that the site is immediately off the highway, and the noise from the interstate traffic can be distracting. However by my second night there I hardly noticed it.
  • If you love cave sight seeing, then this is yr place. Ask for Dylan. He's a great tour guide.
