“Excellent little day trip!”
Review of Forbidden Caverns

Reviewed August 4, 2008

I've been in a few caverns and the Forbidden Cavern was a very accessible. Be sure to take a sweater and wear pants. It's about 58 degrees in there and quite damp. This is an active cave so there is a beautiful stream running through it that is 98% pure and never reaches the surface. The history on the cave, from pre-historic Native Americans who used the cave to escape the heat of the summer and the freezing temps of the winters, was fascinating. Later, the cave was also used by bootleggers. The natural formations in the cave are beautiful and the whole tour is easily accessible, even to small children of about 3 years old and up. I think that very elderly people would have a hard time with some of the climbing and slippery terrain and children younger than 3 would also need a great deal of help. However, it was a great little side trip that was worth the price of admission. Cute little gift shop there too.

If you are looking for fun outdoor (technically underground) natural things to do while in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg/Kodak area, Forbidden Caverns may be for you. If you are able to walk up and down some slight ramps, up and down some steps and don't mind being in a cave, you will love this very beautiful and interesting experience. Perfect for winter or summer spelunking, the cave temperature is a constant temperature comfortable regardless of the outdoor conditions (we went in long sleeve shirts and shorts). Located just a few miles outside of Sevierville, Tennessee, it is an easy morning or afternoon activity.

If you enjoy a bit of cave exploring, you will probably like Forbidden Caverns in Sevire county just east of town a few miles. A nice leisurely walk in the cool of the cave is a great way to beat the heat. We felt it was well worth the admission price.
