Interesting caves with stalactites and stalagmites. Not too long for the squeamish. Educational and the surrounding waterfalls and searches for fossils along with walkways offer hours of entertainment and natural beauty.

Chris is an affable host who proudly & enthusiastically leads tours of his special caves. Well lit tunnels are easy to negotiate. Good for younger kids, too. Seasonal opening as caves flood in the spring.

Interesting place, our tour group was very small (only 4) but our guide was knowledgeable and very personable and gave a terrific tour. Worth the drive.

This is a great spot to visit something unique. If anyone is in this area of the Ottawa Valley I'd definitely recommend the 1.5 hour stop to visit the caves. Thanks Joelle for a great tour!

You can visit the caves in the rain. Be aware the route through the caves is one-way, and the return trip is overground/ open air - you'll be exposed to the elements.
