These caverns are off the beaten path, and you'll have to look for their sign. It seems it's always cold in caverns, so bring a jacket. Our guide was great, and we learned a lot about the local history. Very reasonably priced.

Went there as we never did it before. The student running the tour was great, took photos of guests.. Was well worth it, and not the typical "comic book" type attraction.

The tour is about one hour long and you learn history about the Native American and even moonshiners and how they used the caverns! There is a great gift shop and everyone is so very friendly! The caverns are beautiful and majestic!

There are handrails through most if not all of the cavern. There is also a point where you must walk down stairs

Its not bad but there are some places where you have to walk down stairs deeper into the cave. In total its about a 45 minute walk through the cave.

I believe it’s $16. There are $1.00 off coupons in many books and maps available in the area. It’s a 45-60 min guided tour.
