Staff really friendly, enjoyed the atmosphere, informative tour. I just wish I was more athletic to make it back up the stairs. Loved the geo rock my daughter bought took it home and cracked it and it was a good find. Will go back again.
This was the 3rd such cavern I visited , the first in the USA and honestly speaking this is the best maintained one. This place must be different in spring or summer , nevertheless we enjoyed our trip in the winter too. This place was accidentally discovered when 2 cows accidentally fell into the cavern while grazing. The then proprietor sold it to another person , and the same family still manages or owns this place. It's a property managed very well. It's strictly entrance by ticket only. Initially a person or guide shows the spot where the cows fell and then carefully leads through the flight of stairs and then it's a a meandering but plain walk. The interiors are well lit and maintained. One can easily walk at your own place. At the end is a waterfall. The temperature inside remain moderately same throughout the year. There is a souvenir shop which leads to the tavern . Once you have finished your trip do ask for the stickers , as a souvenir , which the gentleman at the counter gives away. I did not observe any rest room around.
