Overall very well thought out and laid out. Great idea. Not really caves - more spaces made by fallen cliffs centuries ago. Some quite small and low places if you are overweight or very tall. It’s definitely a great place for kids but we found...More

Several natural boulder configurations that you can walk. It is amazing the difference in temperatures. Good descriptions of the various caves so you can determine if you want to go in - tight spaces requiring bent walking. We only actually went in 2 of the...More

NOT FOR young children! Wear hiking boots. If you go too slow or talk too much, you ruin the experience for the people behind you! Please be considerate of others.

Spent the day at the Polar Caves with my youngest and her friend. I had gone there when I was younger and revisiting the park was great. It was a bit overcast but we still had a great time.

This was our first visit here. We are all very glad we stopped. I personally would not call these caves, but the text book definition might be. I am claustrophobic & would not venture into a cave or an enclosed area. Most of these did...More

Not as I remember as a kid. These caves can be really tough to maneuver. Very tight squeezes in most areas. Not much to do except the caves and feed some deer. Steep price for little attraction.
