Cathedral Caverns State Park reviews
We were blown away by the vastness of Cathedral Caverns! Our tour guide, Ivy, was extremely informative and pointed out many overlooked aspects of the cave. The paved walkways made for easy access..... 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.
