Squire Boone Caverns is a natural wonder attraction that provides guests a respite from their plugged-in, technology heavy lives. Squire Boone, American pioneer and legend, discovered the caverns in 1790 and soon built a thriving settlement centered around Boone's Mill, which is still operating today. Rich in history and geological wonders, guests to the Caverns will leave with plans to visit again and again. Along with the cave tour and Historic Boone's Mill, activities at the Caverns include: Indiana's Largest Rock Shop and Gem-Mining Sluice, the Soap Shop, Hannah Boone's Candle Shop, homemade sweets and savory lunch options at the kitchen and a nature trail to simply take some time out. For the adventurous, make a reservation for the Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventure. The tree-top canopy course is family-friendly (a smaller zipline course is available for those who may not meet the height requirements). The complete tour through the beautiful grounds at Squire Boone Caverns includes 6 canopy zip lines and a swinging suspension bridge. Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventures is ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) certified for installation, maintenance and operation, so you can feel secure and concentrate on having fun!

On a recent Indiana and Kentucky caverns adventure we visited Squire Boone 's Cavern in Mauckport. This was our favorite tour. There is a small log cabin "settlement" with shops and a visitor center. The cavern and surrounding land was owned by Daniel Boone ' s brother. Not long after entering the cavern there is an underground stream that cascades... More

This place is nothing short of fascinating! The history of Squire Boone and the discovery of the cave system is amazing. The staff and tour guides were top notch! The 73 step spiral staircase that begins and ends the tour makes for a challenging stretch of the legs. It's definitely worth it to witness the incredible sights within the cavern.... More

Our tour guide here was great and really informative. The gift shop had a lot of really cool things too. My only complaint is if you have really small children, it's a lot of walking for then and carrying them up and down the steep stairs was no easy feat.

We visited because I won tickets through an auction. My wife had been before and I hadn't been. We barely missed the noon tour so we signed up for the 2pm. In the meantime we browsed through the gift shop and made our purchases. Then we sat on the front porch of the gift shop and spoke to one of... More

We had a great trip to the cave, the tour itself was informative and interesting. we did each cave in the area and each one has similar features inside but no two caves are alike. I felt the price for admission was fair, all the caves average about the same in and out of the area. I thought the grounds... More
