Forbidden Caverns, Sevierville

4.4
#2 of 6 in Parks in Sevierville
Cave · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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.

  • Great place to visit on a hot afternoon, do bring a light jacket or long sleeve, nice and cool in the cavern, friendly and knowledgeable staff, we thoroughly enjoyed.  more »
  • Definitely bring at least a light jacket, even if it's 100°F outside. The tour is very interesting with a knowledgable guide, and the gift shop is great too.  more »
