This was a fun little excursion at a sweet little campground. We paid the (somewhat high) price for the boat tour of the cave and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. There were some tight spaces and some drippage on the noggin, but it was...More

Very reasonably priced and you get a pretty neat experience. The guides appear to be very personable. Great with kids of all ages. We didn't camp there but the campground looked to be very nice, clean and we'll maintained.

This is the third year I have stayed here with my family. We particularly like "The Hut" as a unique cabin. Lots to do in area and a great cave tour filled with fun. We intend to come back some time.

Was thinking this floating tour was going to be in a bigger cavern, not a cave that was intentionally flooded to be different from other cave tours. The guide was knowledgeable in the history of the cave and an ok side invented story to keep...More

My husband and I decided to go to Spook Cave after our Effigy mounds stop. Pull into the camp ground, pay your money [$12.00/person] and wait around 20 minutes to so for the tour to start. There's plenty to look at when you're waiting. Grounds...More

No reservation needed, just go and get your name on the list. It will be tight quarters and the taller or heavier you are might make it challenging.
