Before you head out here, check that the stupid federal government is doing it's job. We got all the way there to find it was closed because Congress/Senate can't do their job properly.

Best to get a reservation so that you can guarantee an entrance time to see the caves. You can see the stalactites/stalagmites and smell and 'feel' the atmosphere of the caves.

I love the caves. We took the grandkids 7 and 11. The little one was a little scared at first. Great place to go to cool off in the summer. All the staff at the caves and Chateau are great!

A nice cave to visit offering different types of tours. You will have to schedule your tour in advance. I took the basic tour but was thrilled to be able to visit this cave. Outside of the cave there are a few hiking trails.

No. Unfortunately I did not see any ADA Compliance for that. Small passages prevent it.
