Great cave with a great tour guide. Highly recommend this one. If you like caves and don't visit this one when in the area it's your loss.

Wonderful cave, not developed or over commercialized. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and seemed interested in the tour itself. Some if you like a natural looking cave with not a lot of excavation this is the one for you.

We went on a private tour. The guide was amazingly knowledgeable and we learned a ton. The kids liked it better than the more commercial caves, and they loved the bones. This lets you imagine an untouched cave without the commercial features in competition.

Based on the reviews of this cave we had high hopes. We were very disappointed with our experience. While the cave was different from most we've toured- being more rustic with no frills and no gift shop, which was great - the cave was not...More

I saw a brochure at a local diner and decided we'd visit this cave during a recent overnight trip to the lake. My girlfriend and I took her 3 year old girlfriend and we loved it. It is physically an easy tour with 31 steps...More
