Overview
More
Bluff Dwellers Cave is decorated with stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, saw tooth drapes, flowstone, cave popcorn, cave coral, and cave sponge and more. Your tour guide will show you the beautiful calcite formations that were delicately formed over thousands of years, unhampered by the chaotic life of the surface world. Come enjoy the tranquility of cave life, where geology takes time to get everything just right. Guided tour is 1 hour long.

We really enjoyed the tour. There are slot of natural things in this cave. Stalagmites, stalagtites, and slot of other things.. Only wish tour would allow for people to stay in longer. But very cool.

Wonderful caverns to visit. Great tour- knowledgeable guide. Very friendly and easy going. Great gift shop and museum that even has a real human skull on display found right near the cave! Tour is about 45 minutes long with many neat paths and beautiful sites.
