We enjoy camping at spook cave. We haven't actually done the cave because it's a bit expensive and when your already camping, it can get to be pretty expensive. But the kids really enjoy camping here. I would recommend a remodel of the bathrooms though,...More

Absolutely love Spook Cave Campground. Very quiet (except for the 2-3 times a day the train comes thru which is really fun to see). Clean restrooms/shower facilities. Cute little general store onsite. Perfect for all age groups!

Great guide that offered lots of details & history about the cave. My older parents and teenage kids all enjoyed the experience.

A cute little cave tour. Great for kids if you have them along. Tour guides very knowledgeable and cheerful.

This is a good place to visit, and the boat rides through the cave are very interesting. Beware that you may have to bend over or in so you don't hit your head or hit the wall as some of the passageways are very narrow.

The campground is immaculate. We were lucky enough to get a campsite next to the creek and 2 campsites away from the waterfall. Listening to the creek was so relaxing. The grass on your campsite is cut and soft not to mention the size of...More

We spent an afternoon here with our 2 teenagers and really enjoyed it. There was about an hour wait for the cave tour but it was a really nice Saturday and they were understandably busy. We plan on coming back.

Well it is a Cave and you do have to take a boat to tour it. It is reasonably priced, the cave is still alive and they seem to be trying to keep it that way. Since it is called Spook Cave, be aware they...More

No reservation needed, just go and get your name on the list. It will be tight quarters and the taller or heavier you are might make it challenging.
