Food was excellent. Staff was very polite and helpful and met every request. Rooms were exceptional clean but a bit dated. Park has many special events yearly and worth checking out.

This park is excellent. It’s well laid out, plenty of guides into the caves. Trails are very well maintained. Dog friendly, and lots to explore. Was a gorgeous place to see the fall color. I really want to leave more time to do the longer trail here, only thing I noticed is one trail smelled like a septic system on a portion that wrapped just below the cabins. I bet the water dripping from the rocks there was sewage. But other than that this place is excellent. Next time I’ll check the lodge out.
Everything about our stay was great! The caves are amazing. The park does an excellent job at planning activities all the time like glow in the dark putt putt golf. The pool was huge. We also had a mix up and missed the tour we signed up for. We called the office and a park ranger came right over to take us for a private tour. The customer service every where in the park was outstanding. All of Kentucky's hospitality was outstanding!
