  • Very enjoyable tour of the caves. Some good formations and it was easy to see and hear everything as we were a small group. Helpful and friendly guide. 
  • We were on the first tour of the day. Our guide, Tyler, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and had a great personality. This is definitely worth the trip if you are in the area. 
  • We stayed at the campground, so the cave was a plus. Pretty formations. Worth the price of admission. Lots of stairs, so you don't need a jacket. 
  • Our tour guide was awesome. I believe his name was Bowan or something similar but he was funny and very knowledgable. He made sure we were all safe and joked around. The tour was very interesting :)
  • Just stopped in to visit the cave. Was a great tour. Small groups and friendly staff. My sons had a great time picking out comics at the antique store on site for the ride home. :)
  • Great caverns! Unique formations. Worth it.
  • I stayed here in 2009 and only am now posting a review. Sometimes I procrastinate. I recall the staff as being courteous and friendly, and the campground kind of funky. In a good way. Yeah there were lots of long-termers on the periphery, some of whom could have been meth labs, but they were quiet and kept to themselves. I toured the cavern and decided I would not be touring any caverns any more, not that it wasn't charming. I just decided I like air and sunlight over dark, dank underground caves. To each his own. The gift shop is pure kitsch. Not a thing you need or will pay any attention to after returning home, but charming nonetheless. Bottom line: it's old, but functional and very likely a safely place to stay for a quick visit.
  • What a great place especially on a hot day.
