  • My Alabama family recommended this activity and we were happy everyone enjoyed the experience. Even though the path is paved it is not always perfectly smooth and it’s wet in many places. My uncle...  more »
  • This was an enjoyable break on a long road trip. Not as many formations as in some caverns we have visited but the size of the natural opening and the Goliath formation were impressive.  more »
  • This is the biggest cave we've been in and so very interesting with all the formations in every "room" of the cave. You get to see fossilized sea sponges and a fossilized shark tooth millions of years old. The guides and park staff were so nice and very knowledgeable. We made it a day trip yesterday from Birmingham.
  • Highly recommend visiting this place...even if you have to go out of your way. You can walk up to 3/4 of a mile into the cave. The walkway is a very smooth surface with several elevation changes. If you need assistance with walking you can use you electric scooter. HUGH Cavern! Phone service and GPS is a little scetchy...but is easy to find. Gift shop has VERY fair prices.
