Usually caves that i visit are hugh but this seceret cavers is a tiny narrow walk in where it will lead you to a waterfall at the end. The caves is slightly damp in some spots hence walk carefully.

We took the tour and it was great. The tour guide was really informative and did not rush us through the cavern, Yes there are steps but they are very easy to navigate. There is so much to see that you don't really notice using them. You get to touch the walls and formations which is rare. This place appears... More

We did this as a side trip to Massachusetts. I definitely recommend. Out your guide Eugene was very funny and I enjoyed that it didn't seem scripted. We also got to experience it with just flashlights which was really cool. The stairs are a pain but the end where the waterfall is it beautiful!

We came here after a planned Howe Caverns visit (which was closed despite website info to the contrary). it certainly is smaller and less touristy and the women's restroom was out of paper towels at 11:30 am, and the only food available to buy is prepackaged snacks, but our tour guide, Kevin, was so friendly and knowledgeable that it was...

Stopped here before howe caverns to check it out. It was a whole different vibe than howe. It was more fun and lighthearted. The waterfall was great and the guide was entertaining.

I visited Secret Caverns in the fall of 2013 during a trip to Howe Caverns. They have a hotel there, and a great tour, but this place is LITERALLY 5 minutes away, so why not check it out also if you have the time? My husband preferred this one because it is not as polished and commercialized. I also liked... More

We came here with three adults and two children. Our tour guide's name was Kevin. He was a lot of fun. He had a great sense of humor laced throughout an educational tour. The formations were interesting and well named. The hands on, close and personal approach made this a unique and memorable visit. All five of us had a... More

Brought my children here in 1996. Not sure how we found it without Trip Advisor back then! Great experience, unique from so many other caves we have explored since! Now I'm sharing this experience with my wonderful husband who has never been here. A must see, just do it!
