Create an itinerary including Forbidden Caverns
Tour Forbidden Caverns to see natural chimneys, rock towers, rare onyx dripstones, and grottos. A Native American princess once took refuge in the cave, which was used by local tribes as a shelter in the winter months because of its underground water source. This water source also made the cave an ideal spot for making moonshine illegally until the 1960s. On your tour, a knowledgeable spelunker will introduce you to the site's natural wonders. Bring a light sweater, as the cave's temperature stays cool all year long.

  • We arrived at 10am had to wait 30 mins to get a tour. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for that. Fyi they open at 10 am. Nice cave to see. Many different views.

  • It was awesome and educational. Our tour guide Nathan was informative and polite. Wonderful experience. They give warnings for those with mobility issues, breathing issues, and claustrophobia. I would take these warnings seriously. There were slippery spots and challenging inclines. But if you can make the walk, I encourage you to do so! You won't regret it.
  • We have been to many caverns and this one ranks towards the top of them. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. Had many nice formations and in underwater river or water source. Both those features are important in my ranking. The price was good. I would suggest this to a friend
