  • So many people gave the negative reviews about this and really I don't what people say about it. All I know is that we had an awesome time going there and seeing the sites on the way here.. our tour guide she was awesome and she made us laugh and it was just a fun time and oh I almost forgot watch out for the snapping turtle and the buffalo. If you are lucky you might get to pet the salamander in there too!
  • This was a fair experience. Staff was friendly and informative. Downside is that it's in the middle of nowhere. Drove 3 hrs for a 45min. Walk through cave. Nothing else to do after the cave unless you want to take one of the walking trails. It was 95 degrees, so no thank you.
