The wife and I visited this place after looking around whilst travelling at different caverns. Most are high priced like Luray Caverns at $27 each! This was only $14 each and it was a nice tour by Matt who kept everyone entertained. There's a nice little gift store attached so your sure to find a souvenir that suits.

I'm not sure where these 5 star ratings are seeing. But Dixie Caverns is a FAMILY OWNED Cavern. For many years they have allowed the property to go down hill. It's very hard to understand why anyone would let such a landmark deteriorate. At one time it really was a nice place. Many, many years ago! The only time the... More

We really had a great time at this cave, there is a wonderful store to walk around and enjoy with an antique area. There is camping too. It's right off the interstate and easy to get to. If you're not into camping there are hotels roughly 10 minutes up the road. Restaurants in short drive as well. THis is great... More

Fun for the kids (and adults) to explore Dixie Caverns. We have been a few times and it is always enjoyable. The caves and formations are really something to see. The place isn't flashy by any means, but the people have always been nice.

We has the afternoon off of work and we're looking for something to do. Well we were very glad that the caverns were recommended to us.

We had a great time at the Caverns. The rock and mineral shop in the gift shop had many things my rock loving children liked. The cavern tour is beautiful and our tour guide, Preston was great and full of information about the cave. Besides the beautiful rock formations we also saw a few bats inside and learned about the...

The price for full hookups was reasonable. The drawbacks are uneven dirt pads, half the park has permanent residents that come and go late, after 11pm and leave early, before 7am. Couple that with the noise from the interstate, right next to the park, not a peaceful evening. I would pass this one up.

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.
