  • Loved this, beautiful cave that's a must see. Lots of different formality. Even discovered by a 10 yr old girl. Just beautiful!

  • It's a beautiful campground, but you can't have a generator from 8pm-8am. So you'll have to have solar panels or deal with the heat in the summer months. If you're good with that, then you'll thoroughly enjoy this place. It's nearby the entrance to the cave and it's absolutely beautiful. There's deer anywhere, which was pretty cool to see. Apparently they aren't afraid of humans. There's also wild turkey roaming around.
  • We meet at Visitor Center. Took a shuttle to cave. Two Rangers were with us the entire time. One was the story teller, the other told people to move. According to Ranger, we took the hardest tour with 1200 steps. The steps did have various inclines. I did clock it at 4.2 miles within 3 hrs 23 minutes. The storyteller needs a microphone as couldn't hear her all the time and ranger should allow people to take as many photos (this is their free marketing) as they choose. They told us this tour would be 4 hrs, so we were under that when finishing. If you stay toward the back you have more time to take pictures. Headlight was very useful with not only footing but with seeing. I did take water, but there was one fountain along the way. There were 3 places that had benches. This wasn't my first cave toward but was the one with the highest price.
