Forbidden Caverns, Sevierville

#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.

  • If there is a place you don’t want to miss this is the place. The last time we were there we had our grandchildren with us and was it ever memorable. They couldn’t believe just how awesome a cavern could be. The guides are very good and I can promise that your attention will be kept throughout the tour. This is an absolute must see...
  • Unfortunately due to Covid they are closed at the moment. Beautiful caverns, with great guides who are informative and fun. Definitely a must if you are in the area.
