Book your tickets on line for the cave tour. They sell out quickly. This cave tour us unique because you enter it right from the main building. Take a jacket, book the ticket, grab a small flash light, your camera, and head into the cave.

Really enjoyed the tour. Booked it about a month ahead of time as they sell out early. Take a jacket as it is pretty cold inside. Our guide gave us some good stories as well as some very corny "dad" jokes. I've been to a...More

We booked a tour time the day before which is a good idea. Our guide had a wonderful personality, good knowledge of the cave formations and history. The tour was 90 minutes and the temperatures are cool 50 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit. A jacket is...More

If you are driving the loneliest Highway (US-50) from Ely to Delta don’t forget to stop at Lehman’s Cave. It’s about halfway between the too cities. The constant 50 degree temperature is a nice break from the desert heat. Tours are in small groups so...More

Unlike other NPS Cave Hikes this experience is a bit different. The caves and sights are on a smaller scale and the route is much tighter than that of Carlsbad or Mammoth. It's a much more intimate experience. Glad we got our reservations ahead of...More
