On the grounds we offer a gift shop, free rock/artifact museum, picnic area, our famous 30-foot-high, 10-ton statue of Chief Washakie; noted Chief of the Shoshone Tribe, and our very large green dinosaur; Dino, which has become a local icon. We also have lots of various rocks for sale outside, as well as other statues to see and take pictures with.

Have passed the Shoshone ice caves many times - always in the winter. Now that we were able to be here in summer, we seized the opportunity. Had a wonderful young tour guide to tell us about the history of the volcano, lava tubes, and ice. Fascinating! Easy climb both ways. Bring a sweatshirt for max enjoyment.
Couldn't give away all the beauty of this place- you have to come check it out for yourself. Although some areas were a bit difficult on the knees...it is possible!!!! Worth the drive & time...many thanks to our young guide he was awesome.
