Park Service Guide, Kim, was very well spoken and kept our group's attention from start to finish. Interesting integration of historical use of the cave from a century ago with geological features. The caves and the Park are off the beaten path but well worth...More

The perfect cave to visit for everyone in the family. The access couldn't be easier, it's right out the door from the visitor's center. There are some stairs if you do the complete tour, but even those with disabilities can visit the main cave room...More
