The formations within are almost unbelievable - something you might find at Disneyland - except that these are real. If you are in the area, this is a stop you should take time to explore. more »
Way cool (figuratively and literally) caverns, though the name is somewhat misleading. It IS in L&C territory. If I recall, the party did note the condensation arising out of the vents, But the Corps ... more »
We enjoyed our visit to Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, a large limestone cavern filled with spectacular stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and helictites. Because of the park's name, I had assumed ... more »
Amazing place! Loved it! The tour guide was amazing, if you don't get a good tour guide your experience won't be as good. I had a blast and my family had a blast. Had a 10 month old baby with us and while he didn't know exactly what was going on he did ok. The hike up was hot and for some took a bit but it's worth it. The trail is paved and there are benches to sit on. I'd recommend anyone to this great place! Make sure to call ahead because they are seasonal and might be closed.
Do you like caves? Because this place has some awesome caves. Also our guide was awesome af.
After due diligence in asking the ticket seller if toddlers were ok to visit the caves (the response was an enthusiastic "yes!"), we proceeded with the tour to disappointing results. Needless to say, starting off a 2 hour tour with a 3/4 mile uphill hike in the blazing afternoon sun did not sit well with the toddler. We then were told that we couldn't make ANY noise (couldn't wake up the bats) and you couldn't touch anything. While I respect the natural beauty of the caverns (which is why we were there), I couldn't enjoy it at all because of the impossible task of trying to keep my toddler quiet and with her hands in her pockets. I wish the ticket seller would have said this wasn't for toddlers, so she could have stayed back with the grandparents (who wisely sat out, even though they too were told that it was good for them...did I mention that you have to go down a rock slide on your bum to avoid hitting your head?). Had the teller been truthful, everyone's experience would have been better.
We weren't able to see the cavern on this trip, but we enjoyed camping at the campground quite a bit. We chose to camp at this park to get away from the interstate hwy corridor for a peaceful evening, and it was perfect, located in a tranquil valley amid the hills. Facilities were well maintained, and fellow campers were friendly and respectful.
Visiting the caverns was an amazing experience! Our guide, Shaun Hallihan, was very knowledgeable (he answered questions outside of his regular routine), was funny, and made the experience even more enjoyable. The caverns themselves were incredible, and I would highly recommend this as a must-do adventure! (P.S., there is a short 20-30 min. hike that is a 300 ft. ascent in order to get to the cavern entrance)
