We tried to visit this cave but they were closed. We tried calling the two numbers listed on their web site, but there was no answer. So be aware before you go out there, for it is a little out of the way.

First cave tour that didn't feel like a tour. Very Mom and Pop, small groups, incredible cave. Pictures do not do it justice. Literally stumbled onto this cave leaving Mammoth.
