  • What an educational and unique experience for all ages. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. Take a camera or make sure your phone is charged!!  more »
  • Took a short diversion on a long trip to visit the Lost World Caverns in the WV mountains. The facility is very well run, and the caves have well lit walkways which allow close-up and easy viewing.  more »
  • Excellent adventure! Definitely worth the trip and minimal cost! Beautiful short drive from the interstate… Outstanding hospitality and service from a very knowledgeable owner and staff. The walk was easy and very manageable for a 60 year old and infant… Took about an hour with frequent stops to gaze in wonder and read the information sheets. Will definitely go again and recommend to all friends and family.
  • A flat tire left us with time to kill, and thankfully Google led us to this amazing cave! I love that it's a self guided tour. We've been to other caves and this is by far our favorite. What a happy find! Be sure to stop and read all the detailed signs, & be ready to walk up & down stairs (but if I can do it, so can most people). Bring the kids. There's even a picnic area our front. Do not bring dogs, as no other dogs allowed except the one that lives there. For the first time I got to feel the calcite. Photos do not do this justice. You just have to see it! A lot of time and effort has been put into this place, and it's well worth going!
