We went with my mother and father-in-law. It was by far one of the most beautiful caves we've ever been in. The tour was only about 1 hour and 15 minutes, but we had about 11 people and moved pretty quick. It was pretty warm...More

With over 50 years of active caving, I can say that this is, inch per inch, the prettiest cave I've been in. The campground/RV sites are beautiful, clean and convenient. The family that owns it are great stewards of the cave and the surrounding land....More
