A knowledgeable guide will lead you on a half mile stroll in the cave figuring in "Tom Sawyer" and Huckleberry Finn." The cave itself is quite interesting, though I suspect those who have seen a number of Midwestern Caves would have more interest in the...More

It's mostly a flat walk with some narrow spots. Not narrow for a person but for a stroller or wheelchair. We had Bailey as our guide and she was very good. 52 degrees year round so be prepared. It was fun

We visited the mark twain cave. It's unlike any of the caves we have visited before. It's a maze cave with many different corridors. This cave is filled with some amazing history. We found the stories about this cave fascinating.

Aside from being a tad over priced, it was a cool and historical experience. Nice to go in a small group of 5 yesterday.

We only visited the Mark Twain Cave since the Cameron Cave was closed for the season. I would recommend bringing a light jacket or you'll have to buy one at the gift shop since it's 52 degrees year round in the cave. Our tour guide...More

As with other cave adventures I've been on, I was pleased, however, I was only disappointed that we didn't go further back into the caves. Nonetheless, the tour guide was knowledgeable of the history of the cave, very interesting.

I would think so but we only did the Mark Twain cave. If you like to see caves that have bats in them then you would need to do the other cave tour as the Twain cave does not have them.
