Even though it was raining and misty, we had a great time visiting the caverns. We bought tickets at the gift shop, which was full of interesting rock formations and gems for sale. After that, we had a short and pleasant boat trip across Shasta...More

Enthusiastic & knowledgeable tour given by 'Cave Dave'! We learned so much from Dave about how caves are formed, and about the composition of the caves. Dave runs the tours year-round and hires extra help during summers. I'm sure he trains the seasonal employees well,...More

Lake Shasta Caverns are one of the top places to visit in the Mount Shasta area. What a tour! Definitely worth the time. It is a great place for children, though I would not recommend it for toddlers or very young children. The caverns were...More

If you haven't seen the Lake Shasta Caverns in person you should pay for a tour. It is worth the price and I think everyone should check it out. I had not seen it until the last year after growing up here and they are...More

This is a great excursion to see beautiful caverns with rock formations millions of years old. It is less than two miles off of Interstate 5 (Exit 695). We were worried because we had a 27-foot Class C RV. The roads to get there are...More
