This is a great little cave, a fun activity for the kids, and if you're lucky you will see some bats! They have a really nice gift shop. It's a great summer activity to help cool you down on a hot day.

Wife and I just toured today. Nice fall drive to see some color! Self guided tour, was not rushed. But was during school hours and tourist season was over. Except for the fall leaf peepers! The headphones was somewhat staticky. Overall...a great experience.

The cave needs a major update of the audio. (It’s a self-guided tour). It takes about 30 min round trip (20 min to the end, 10 min walking slowly back to the start). It’s easy to walk through the cave though.

My wife and I went here with my son and his girlfriend while visiting them. Nice self guided tour. Not the biggest cave , but well taken care of. Takes about an hour to tour.

Spacious cave, not as tight as some so no bumping your head. Nice and cool and well lit. If you do the self tour you have headphones and learn a lot about the cave, it's history, and caves in general. Thoroughly enjoyed the leisurely walk...More

I would love to explore more caves, but many have trams that maneuver in ways I don't wish to maneuver. This is a mild exploration that is excellent for children and those who don't care for steep or narrow passageways, etc.. It is an interesting...More

I really enjoyed myself in this cave. The cave is still growing so you can't touch it. It is a self-guided tour, and you have to use the headphones provided to guide yourself through the tour. Unfortunately, everyone won't follow the instructions given by the...More
