Review Highlights
Nice park

Park is a bit small but very nice. Centerpiece is the Onondaga Cave, besides there are 2 easy hikes.

We stopped in here on the way back to Meremac State Park after a day out. We just missed the last cave tour, which was all right since this was an unplanned stop anyway. We did get to check out the visitor center and gift...More

Lots of stuff to do in or around the park. Not enough time to do it all. Could explore caves, hike, bike, float the river, etc. Katy trail super close.

I used to camp here frequently in the 70's but had not camped here since it became a state park in the late 70's. I was pleasantly surprised by the improvements that the state has made to the park. We had electric and water hookups....More

What’s better than to descend 180 below ground for a 90 minute easy walk with a constant 57 degree cave? We all had a great time, the walking wasn’t that difficult and even though we had hiking sandals I feel that we could have kept...More

Beautiful cave and very interesting! Our guide was great and had a lot of information. Bring a jacket if you go because the temp inside the cave is 56 degrees.

This park is relatively close to my home, so I visit multiple times throughout the year. Onondaga Cave is the obvious centerpiece of the park, but the trails looping through the hills and rock formations are spectacular. The cave has been covered in specific reviews,...More

We just paid for the cave tours, no park entry fee. There would be a fee to camp in the park, though. See their website
