Tour was good but didn't get much of a chance to take photos. It's 50 degrees year round in the cave but a light jacket is fine. If you are a bigger person, think twice as there are parts of the tour where you have...More

Went with my parents as a teenager and now came back 17 years later with a toddler. This place was spectacular both times. Book in advance, at least 3 day weekends. We came for Memorial Day weekend and ended up with an unideal time late...More

The perfect cave to visit for everyone in the family. The access couldn't be easier, it's right out the door from the visitor's center. There are some stairs if you do the complete tour, but even those with disabilities can visit the main cave room...More
