I'm not sure where these 5 star ratings are seeing. But Dixie Caverns is a FAMILY OWNED Cavern. For many years they have allowed the property to go down hill. It's very hard to understand why anyone would let such a landmark deteriorate. At one time it really was a nice place. Many, many years ago! The only time the... More

We really had a great time at this cave, there is a wonderful store to walk around and enjoy with an antique area. There is camping too. It's right off the interstate and easy to get to. If you're not into camping there are hotels roughly 10 minutes up the road. Restaurants in short drive as well. THis is great... More

We has the afternoon off of work and we're looking for something to do. Well we were very glad that the caverns were recommended to us. There is a cool little gift shop with an antique store attached. Our guide, Matt was well educated on the caverns and gave a great tour. The sights inside the cavern were very cool... More

We had a great time at the Caverns. The rock and mineral shop in the gift shop had many things my rock loving children liked. The cavern tour is beautiful and our tour guide, Preston was great and full of information about the cave. Besides the beautiful rock formations we also saw a few bats inside and learned about the...

The price for full hookups was reasonable. The drawbacks are uneven dirt pads, half the park has permanent residents that come and go late, after 11pm and leave early, before 7am. Couple that with the noise from the interstate, right next to the park, not a peaceful evening. I would pass this one up.

They have a penny press for those of you who collect elongated or smashed pennies. that was in fact how we found them in the first place. the cave itself is gorgeous. there... More

We had a good time in the caverns! Very interesting to see all the formations in the caverns. I took my sister and her best friend who are both from California and they loved it. Great place to stop to see wondrous things under the Earth.

We were in Virginia to take my daughter and a friend to the college for the weekend at liberty university. I had three other teens to keep occupied, so took one day and went to Dixie caverns and they all really enjoyed it.
