I was told by a friend of mine who used to work at Bridal Cave that it is either the second or third most scene cave in the country. Well, if that's the case, I probably wouldn't survive the first most scenic. The most incredible pictures online can't even do this cave justice. It's a natural wonder that everyone should... More

If you're into caves this one is definitely a must see. Lots of rooms with beautiful stalacmites and stalagtites and other formations. Our guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend this place.

We stopped by to visit Bridal Cave on a Sunday afternoon and we weren't disappointed. The drive over seems like you're going through someone's neighborhood, but the route is clearly marked by big signs along the way. When we arrived, we were told the next tour was just about to leave, so we didn't have to wait long before we... More

This is the best cave tour we've ever been on! Definitely the highlight of our trip! The little gift shop had plenty of treasures and our tour guide, Sarah, was very knowledgable, and quite frankly, just a delight! We will definitely come back next time we're in the area!

We were in the off season. Smaller groups. They plan the tours based on flow. They may have up to six tours at a time going through in the summer. The earlier morning tours only had a few people this time of tear. However, the wait was a little longer. They leave about every hour. They had a nice 1/2... More

I think this cave is definitely worth a visit. Beautiful formations and very friendly staff. The souvenir store is very pleasant. If you've never done a cave tour then this is a must see.

Didn't have to wait long for next tour to start. can be very wet if it recently rained. The stairs down to the entrance are the most strenuous.

For a smaller cave tour, this one really packs a punch! The cave is like walking through a big marshmallow of deposits. The children on our tour loved it; the tour length is just right for youngster's attention spans. Highway signage was very detailed; you will be able to drive right to it. Nice little sitting area outside the cave... More

This is the first cave I have ever visited, and I was not disappointed! This was a great way to kill some time during a chilly day during our trip. The cave itself is beautiful and was so unique it almost didn't look real! I would say the only down side was the guide didn't seem too knowledgable on seemingly... More
