Everything about our visit was wonderful. I carried my 11 year old granddaughter over to Alabama to show her sights from my childhood in Marshall County and surrounding areas. We both loved our visit to this beautiful cave. Dalton was an excellent guide. He had...More

A really well done 90 minute, 1.5 mile walk, through a beautiful, monstrous, cave with all the incredible features you expect under ground. Secret rivers, rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites and witty tour guides. The only drawback here is cost. $18 for anyone over 12...More

I don't really think there is time to set up a tripod on the tour but by all means picture taking is encouraged and you'll be glad you did take them ! It is a beautiful place !

We do have hiking trails in the park. You can pick up a trail map at the gift shop. We also have gem mining at the park. Price for a bag of mining rough ranges from $6.00 up to $23.00 depending on what you would like to find.
