I wanted to clarify about the cave being wet. This cave will only become very wet after excessive rainfall. Caves are nature's drainage system, so after it rains, water will eventually seep through cracks and crevices, ending up in the cave. The majority of the...More

If you love to explore and learn about caves, then this cave is definitely for you and for your family. We have toured this cave several times during the past several years. We seem to learn something new each time we visit.

265 steps in all .. 100 ft straight down. Everything was wet and slippery. Tennis shoes a must! Some places were extremely tight. The story behind the cavern is cool and there aren’t any bats in the cave!
