Traveled Tuesday at 3:30 pm only to find the gates locked. Found a hotel in Bedford and came back at 9:20 in the morning. Gate was once again locked. Mind you the Website says 9am to 4pm. No mention on their website that they were closed. Tried calling several times and only got a recording. A worker came out and completely ignored us waiting at the gate to check his mail. Be advised that you should call ahead to see if they are going to be open, they do not update their website. Don’t waste your time like we did. When we did get our return phone call they claimed that their website is being completely redone.(but they couldn’t put up anything on telos site to let you know that they are closed for the season). As seen by the pictures they can’t even put a closed for the season sign on their gate. (That would have at least saved us a hotel room).

Last of our Cave Tour
Oct 2020 • Family
We visited three caves before this one during our road trip to southern indiana .
By far this was my least favorite just because you do not really see a lot of formations just boat tour inside cavern and its mostly flat...

but we did this after marengo and since we were already at bedford we went to see it ... and this was our last cave tour.

we got free t shirts because we showed them our admission tickets of the other three cave tours

Excellent and unique cave tour

We absolutely loved this cave. We were the only ones on the boat tour and the guide was super nice and full of information. We will come back and do cave kayaking!

Last stop on Indiana Cave Trail
Sep 2020 • Solo
I decided to do the Indiana Cave Trail. It’s 4 caves in southern Indiana and if you go to all 4 you earn a t-shirt. You do not need to go all at once but you probably could do 3 of the 4 in one day.

While a cave this was far different from any of the others. You take a steep walk into the cave walk just a little way underground then the rest of the tour is by boat.

The blue water is phenomenal! I loved it.

We were able to see Cave crawdads and Cave fish and even a rouge catfish (they believe it accidentally got in after some recent flooding).

I would recommend. If you are claustrophobic this may not be the tour for you.

Underground adventure

The masks are required, the number of people in the boat is limited and the gift shop is closed. But no matter what restrictions they introduce, it will still be worth to get in a boat on a river under the ground! Amazing experience!

Awesome Scout Trip
Jan 2020
Our scout group spent the night here and had a fantastic time through their scout overnight program. The guides took them both on a "wild trek" through the caving and the boat tour. The boys loved the wild trek. It was definitely hard muddy work but worth it to see the joy on the kids faces. Next they did a demonstration of caving gear and really explained to the kids how people who really know what they are doing cave, as well as horror stories of how people with zero knowledge get themselves into trouble in caves. It was good for the boys to hear from the pros they respect what not to do and how important training is vs just heading into a cave by yourself with a flashlight and a prayer for safety. Next we did a boat tour which was super relaxing and we enjoyed. The caverns are beautiful and the guides do a good job making it fun. Afterward we saw pics of the rest of the cave and then headed to bed. Throughout the night, they had the concession stand open to keep the kids happy, and they have flush toilets/water for the campers. Breakfast was Arby's wraps and turnovers and lots of coffee--a nice surprise. I would absolutely recommend this trip for all groups. The staff were so passionate about sharing their love with the kids, but also impressing on them the absolute need for safety.

An hr of wasted time

Waited for an hour in the gift shop, finally walked to the boat and went on a 30 minute tour in the dark. They did turn on the boat lights to see 1 fish

We're sorry to hear about your recent experience. Typically our tours last one full hour, and tours run as people come in, or sometimes on the hour if it's the fall.

Great guide with information.
Oct 2019
This cave was different than any previous cave we have seen. The boat ride was unique, being in a boat and in a cave going around bends and turns. Beautiful trees having changes in color while walking around before your trip below.
