We had a good time in the caverns! Very interesting to see all the formations in the caverns. I took my sister and her best friend who are both from California and they loved it. Great place to stop to see wondrous things under the Earth.

There is a nice gift shop here with lots to choose from and also an antique store. We did not tour the caverns but we did enjoy the gift shop and antiques store.

We were in Virginia to take my daughter and a friend to the college for the weekend at liberty university. I had three other teens to keep occupied, so took one day and went to Dixie caverns and they all really enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable tour of the caves. Some good formations and it was easy to see and hear everything as we were a small group. Helpful and friendly guide.

We were on the first tour of the day. Our guide, Tyler, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and had a great personality. This is definitely worth the trip if you are in the area.

We stayed at the campground, so the cave was a plus. Pretty formations. Worth the price of admission. Lots of stairs, so you don't need a jacket.

We called ahead for overnight stop. The guy on the phone was super helpful. They were concerned with credit card safety and would not take it over phone. Put me down for a site and told me to pay when I came in.

We had originally planned on going tubing but the area was experiencing a heat wave so what better alternative than a cave tour? We had about a 15 min wait before our tour began so we visited the antique shop attached. Clever idea, don't you think? Well I did, too. But, of course, found several items to buy. The tour... More

We intended to head to the Shannondoah area but we found this along the way. Little did we know that along all of I-81 there is tons of Caves and Caverns to explore. This is something you could make a day of if you had the time. It is well worth the stop and it is very cool 55 degrees... More

Dixie Caverns is a series of caves kept basically in their original condition except with lighting and a walkway/stairs added. There's nothing kitchy--that's all saved for the gift shop/antique store--no gnome statuettes or colored lights or music. There's nothing spectacular, either--no huge underground lakes or caverns filled with shining crystals. But it's a very nice tour, extensive enough to take... More
