Caves are CLOSED for the season

Minors must be accompanied by  a supervising adult on all  tours.

Please call to make a RESERVATION for the cave tours. 

Dates are subject to change!!

The only access to the caves is on a naturalist-guided tour during a scheduled visit. Cave tours include information on the geology, biology, and human history of the caves.  

Bring a flashlight as there are no lights in the cave otherwise.

The caves are cool, around 58 degrees Fahrenheit, we recommend long sleeves; sweatshirts or coat, pants; not shorts, and close-toed shoes; not sandals. 

Our caves are wet, which means there are mud puddles and you will at least get your shoes wet and dirty.  If you plan to crawl you will get even dirtier. 

Tours generally can take anywhere from 1-1/2 hours to 2-1/2 hours.
