There is a stream running trough this cave, plus a waterfall. There are fossils embedded in the walls. We loved this cave.

Other reviewers said it was a tight fit in some spots. This is true, though I wanted to take an opportunity to define that more. There is an extended portion of the cave tour that weaves through a tight passage way. I envisioned a low...More

My husband and I visited the caves yesterday with some friends from Georgia. I wasn't expecting so many steps or tight spaces so it was a little claustrophobic but I felt accomplished when it was over. Our guide was excellent and we learned a lot....More
