  • I had a much better visit here than the Wine Cave, highly recommended- everyone should definitely go.  more »
  • Good cave tour and beautiful to just drive through the park. Lots to see in that area, but this is a must do.  more »

  • Very nice park. We enjoyed the tour of the natural cave entrance as well as the visitor center. The rangers all seemed very dedicated to making the stop at their park interesting and worthwhile, which we were impressed with. But the elevator still isn't working; it's a bummer not to be able to enter the cave.
  • Beautiful park! Wind Cave Visitors Center was very informative. The building was kept up nicely and the park rangers were very helpful and friendly. The elevator was not working when we were there, so there were no cave tours at all. There were lots of activities at the visitor center at least. The gift shop had a lot of options for souvenirs and were reasonably priced.
