I'm no fan of frivolous spending of tax dollars but there is nothing frivolous about the money spent on this place. It's a simple and straightforward Park - no frills beauty, just what I like. My wife and teenage daughters and boyfriends were similarly impressed....More

So the dripstone tour took around an hour or so, and the cave formations were well lit if hard to take pictures of. Our tour guides were DJ and Dale and they did an excellent job of explaining things and telling interesting bits of history....More

This was a great tour and very informative. There are 2 different tours available you better be in shape for the longer tour there are a ton of steps. Great photo opportunities. This is a must see if you are in the Mountain View area.

I would certainly not take small children on the longer tour. It is over an hour long and there are dangerous areas where they need constant supervision. I would recommend the dripstone tour at their ages.
