Stopped here for something different to do in my area. Our tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable and the cave was cool to see. She asked often if we had any questions, which was appreciated. It's definitely worth seeing.

This cave tour is worth the time and nominal cost, and while it was only my wife and I this time, it would certainly be a fun outing for the whole family.

The cavern is a little out of the way from Rt. 78, but worth the stop. The cavern is small, but the guides are knowledgeable and loud enough to hear. (Why do adults feel the need to touch the cave after specifically being asked not...More

First, the caverns are not huge, so if you're expecting gigantic caves hundreds of feet underground, don't. That being said, you go about 120 feet underground into about 4 different chambers. There really are some beautiful rock formations, the guide is very informative, and it's...More

No, you have to leave them at the entrance to the cavern as the walkway gets narrow in spots.
