I thought I would be scared to go to the caverns, but it wasn't scary at all. The guide was young and knowledgeable. Seems like he was probably a college student. Quite interesting and educational for all ages.

A hidden gem down a dirt road but so worth the time. Spectacular caverns. Check Groupon before you go in case 2 for 1 offer still available.

It's not a Man cave or a Woman Cave - It's a People cave. Plenty of steps and walkways so be careful. The Bat is an only child so have no worries here. The gift shop is tremendous an exploration in itself. Great day trip...More

Be prepared for a difficult walk through the cave. There are not many formations and the ones there look "dirty" - not sure whether it is algae or minerals seeping in from above. There are more huge rocks laying around than there are stalactites/stalagmites. Only...More

I would have to agree with all the recommendations NOT to bring your dog into the caverns. It was very slippery and she could easily hurt herself.

The tour would be fine for a 5 year old with supervision. We take several kindergarten classes on a regular basis for school field trips every year and they all walk the entire tour with no problem.
