  • 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.
