Excellent cave tour! Underground creek and waterfall, huge caverns. Lots of stairs and some uneven spots, so not for those with difficulty walking. We've been on multiple cave tours in several states and this was one of the top ones!

This place was awesome. The guide was very nice and let us take alot of pictures. I wish they had something like this closer to home. My family loved every bit of it. If we visit again we will be coming back!!

Caves were INCREDIBLE, wish the tour guide had more fun with it. If we weren't talking to him and asking questions...I'm pretty sure it would have been a silent tour.

This was such a hidden gem in Townsend. There are about 400 steps but they are not major steps so don't let that dissuade you from going into the caverns. The waterfall was pretty and the Great room was awesome. When they turned the lights...More

Enjoyed our visit to the cavern and Jill was a great tour guide. Lots and lots of stairs so wear good sturdy shoes. But very pretty. Took about an hour and distance was about one mile

Hidden treasure in Townsend! Our tour guide was great, really involved and friendly. Our boys are 10 and 12 and really enjoyed being down in the caverns, especially being able to touch and feel everything without feeling restricted. I highly recommend wearing shoes that you...More

Don't miss. It's like no other cave you've been in. We've been to several of these cave tourism attractions and almost skipped this one. Glad we did it. Kids 9, 7 and 5 were never bored and were totally fascinated.

You drive right up to the entrance and gift shop. Once inside the cave, the walk is rather strenuous and make sure you wear proper shoes.
