Cool cave. Nice people. Kids loved the gift shop. The cave has many fascinating goelogical features. The price was a little high, or I would give 5 stars.

I was hoping for diversity in color... but it's mostly a brown snot color. It did have ONE green fern... a rare site in a cave. Way overpriced gift shop with not much selection, but it was fun. Small group highly recommended. $16.50 per adult....More

There are lots of signs along the highways but do not mention how far anything is. Off of 79 there are lots of signs but it's a very long drive off of there down to the caves. Apparently they do that on purpose. Not worth...More

We drove from close to to Deadwood. Nice drive, but long. The last part of the drive is on Gravel. Would not recommennd Rvs to go up the road. This was our first cave to go into. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable.

The entrance is a gravel road that continues in excess of 2 miles and gets worse as you proceed. Sign says "welcome bikers" but says nothing about the length or condition of the road - steep hill, very rough, and loose gravel all the way....More

2 mile gravel road in, the first mile is fine but the last mile quickly degrades and the last 150 yards are down a rocky hill with loose rocks. THIS ROAD IS NOT FOR BEGINNER RIDERS. My wife has a brand new street glide and...More

I had low expectations, and they were definitely surpassed. The manager was great, and our guide, Shea (sp?) was really good. He had high energy and had some great stories, etc. There are 120+ steps, but didn't seem too bad. A little slippery near the...More
