About 65 miles from the Grand Canyon is this Cavern. It is a cool little place to check out. They offer several tours a day including a night "ghost" tour. We did the regular day tour, our tour guide was knowledgeable about the cavern and it's history. The price is a little high, but we enjoyed it.

We visited this as part of our route 66 adventure and it was a nice adventure. Would not travel there for this alone but added to the drive is worth while. Our tour guide was a young guy and witty and it took a little over an hour to do the tour. Start the tour on an old elevator descending... More

This was one of the coolest places we visited,it is also suppose to be haunted.Our tour guide was great and it took a little over an hour to do the tour.The cavern also has a room you can rent and stay the night.I will be looking for a few friends to do that with,the cost is $850 for one night.

The tour was interesting, but these dry caverns were not treated with the environmental care that you might expect for a natural wonder. The caverns contained a suite that people can rent for $850 a night. We were told that people who spend the night have free run of the caverns. That doesn't seem like a safe or environmentally friendly... More

Take the tour starting on an elevator descending 200 ft into passages and "rooms," big enough to have been designated bomb shelters in the 60's and stocked with food and water to accommodate hundreds of people. The supplies are still there as well as a stage for musical events never used because the entrepreneurs neglected to check on venue requirements... More

A good break on Route 66. Take the full tour. Cool caverns 21 stories down. A lot of interesting history.

I wouldn't stay there (inside the cave in the suite or outside motel). But definitely worth a visit. Staff were friendly. The guide was great. I feel bad for a previous reviewer who was stuck there; no light, no sound, 21 stories below surface, nothing lives there. My teenager, and a few others in our group, enjoyed the tour as... More
