A much newer cave than Luray, this one has few stalactites/stalagmites, although it did have one huge one. It has a few other interesting features, including a vacuum locked chamber. Take the tour to find out more.

We probably should have visited these caverns before the Luray Caverns because they looked positively bare by comparison. They are much more "cave-y" with few stalagmites and stalactites. The caverns were also really cold, so wear a jacket. The teenage tour guide did a great job trying to make the caverns more interesting than they really were. The highlight was... More

I've been to quite a few Caverns and this is definitely one of the best! Not only does this cave have some unique features, but it also has Sonny, our tour guide, who was knowledgeable, funny, and patient!

A wonderful family oriented tour through some incredible caverns. Easy enough for everyone. We had a 2 year old with us. Spectacular structures and the organ at the end is awesome!! After the tour take a run through the garden maze!!

Our tour guide was Joe. He was very knowledgeable about the caverns. We really liked there lighting. We were able to use our camera and the flash. We took a lot of great pictures.

Today i have visited caverns. The place is not too big, it takes about 1 hour. Very nice guide took me and my wife (the whole group 😀) through those caverns. There are caverns flowers - never seen before.. They may be found in only 4 caverns in world. Worth to see it..

We went to Skyline Caverns around 3:30 on a Thursday afternoon. This was a great time to tour. There were only the 2 of us and a gentleman from Germany on the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us as much time as we wanted taking pictures and asking questions. We wanted to wish her good luck when... More

Skyline Caverns make for a great side trip from Shenandoah National Park. The caverns are cool, mystical and magical. You can hardly believe that they are real. Be sure to bring a sweater and comfy walking shoes. Enjoy!

Went with family to this attraction. Sonny, our tour guide, was very informative and considerate. I would not recommend this attraction for people who have severe back issues or recent back surgery. Some stairs and dirt floor with some up and down slopes. Railing not along entire path so if you are not steady on your feet you aren't allowed... More

Took my 3 grand children as well as my wife and daughter for a visit. Our guide was excellent and a great experience was had by all. When teenage girls like a venue like this you feel like you hit a home run.
