The Polar Caves offers an interesting experience for adults and kids especially very energetic six year olds. There is a lot of interesting geological history to read in the "rock garden" and the caves themselves are a unique experience. The temperature changes and rock variations in each of the caves was unique. Fun climbing in and out of, even the... More

This is great stop for young families. Kids get to run and climb rocks and then climb up through various size caves. Can be tough on legs if knee issues. Has a handicapped walk up thru woods that seniors and others enjoy.

Timeless experience. Went there in the '60's as a child, 80's as a parent, 2016 as a grandparent. Always interesting, educational and just plain fun

My sister and I were leaf-peeping in the area a couple of weeks ago, and we decided to stop in to check out the caves. We didn't know what to expect, but we found the park to be extremely cute and well organized. We are two adult women, but could see how amazing of an excursion this would be for... More

Absolutely had a blast here. The caves were just astounding; it was very cool to crawl and climb through. Everything was well-labeled and very clean.

I didn't know what to expect exactly and I was pleasantly surprised that it was like great big park full of caves and walks, stairs and a couple of opportunities for climbs. We went with our two granddaughters and their parents. It was fun for all of us. The kids really enjoyed feeding the animals there as well. I look... More

We're grandparents, and in pretty good physical condition, but we had to give in and take the side paths around most of the caves. But the kids loved it so much, they wanted to go into all the caves again after we had lunch. By the way, even though we brought our own lunch, we were allowed to eat in... More

A must do, if you love the outdoors! It was tricky for my 5 year old granddaughter to make her way through the darkness and stairs. The caves are more fun for bigger children. But don't let that stop your adventure. Oh, And the staff was so helpful.
