This is an extremely beautiful cave. Think of it as a little Carlsbad Caverns, but with less tourists and walking. This was far more enjoyable and stunning than Mammoth Cave. Our tour consisted of about 12 people and a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide. The cave...More

Our son had a field trip here and it included mining rocks. My son loved doing that. The cave was real cold at the beginning then once you enter it became more mild. I'd recommend pants and a hoodie that can wrap around you easily...More

After being told by Mark at the Aqua Restaurant that it is a must see, we visited. We missed the tour but went in and walked the grounds. It is so nice and peaceful. Will definitely go back for the tour.
