Near little gift shop. Has an older style atmosphere but has some cool little souvenirs for the kids. Reminds me of one of those Gatlinburg type shops.

Enjoyed looking at all the rocks at Big Mike's, and the kids didn't break anything!! Bonus!! Found a couple pieces to take home.

This is exactly what you expect from a gift shop. The people working there are very nice and the place is clean and nice to check out. If you like rocks then this is the place to go.

So many tshirts, coffee cups, trinkets, etc. Perfect place for souvenirs. Walk down the hill for a smaller little shop for nicer cut rocks and jewelry with a selection of larger rocks outside. Also, Big Mo is incredible and you shouldn't leave without getting a...More

Big Mike has passed away and the shop has been sold. Need a large chunk of glass, some rocks or minerals or a delightfully tacky remembrance \of your trip?? Then Big Mike's is the place for you. On the highway 70 highway to Mammoth Cave.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed Big Mike's yet! Big Mike was an awesome giving, compassionate guy who loved children and his family are no different. This is a unique shop and seems to be timeless. Go through the Mystery house, it's unlike anything you've...More

Just stopped by to check out the rock shop. Great selection of crystals and gemstones. If you're not into collecting them, they still make great gifts and souvenirs! You'll find unique things here like carved animal gemstones, or a natural crystal/gemstone chessboard. You can also...More

This gift shop is affordable featuring the typical tourist inventory common to the area. The kicker for this spot is the "Mystery House". From the outside, it doesn't seem like much and on the inside it's not very big. But it's a fun optical illusion...More
