    I've driven by the spot to quite a few times and I finally decided to take the tour . It was pretty cool to see the lava tunnels and the ice, but this is definitely not a destination. The Tour guide w...  more »

    There's not much too it. It's a lava tube that has a bunch of ice in it because of a weird air flow pheomenon. Which is cool. The tour guide we had was pleasant and knowledgeable. Downside: no flush t...  more »

    I think this was the perfect 'adventure' for a young family. The hike was very manageable even for young children. But a word of caution - if your kids are not good at following instructions, this is probably not the hike for them. There was potential fall or rattlesnake danger if they strayed from the trail on the way to the cave, or potential fall into the water/ice danger if they got rowdy in the cave. Also - with kids is is probably best to bring coats. Even it is is 100 degrees outside, it still is 28 degrees in the cave and you will be in the cave for 15 to 20 minutes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and tried to involve everyone in the group including the kids. As one reviewer below stated - probably not worth making a special destination trip for, but well worth the time and expense if you are in the area.

    Very interesting. I would recommend this site to everyone. The rest rooms were filthy, this the only draw back. It's amazing. Thank you

    Such a great field trip to bring the kids on a day off. They learn sooo much about the history of the ice caves. The tour is cheap and very fun. It's gift shop is even cheaper and they have some cool stuff! DONT FORGET TO BRING SWEATERS!!! IT'S COLD IN THERE!!!
