So I reviewed this attraction about four years ago, but feel the need to restate something for prospective parents after my last visit a week ago. The first cavern is awesome, and it's for all ages. The "ceiling" has holes so light streams down, and...More

A small group of us went spelunking in this awesome cave and we loved our time there! Bring a helmet, a flashlight, and lots of kleenex as you will get dirty.

I always take visitors to Ottawa to the Gatineau Park. The lucky ones get to go to the Lusk Caverns. Let me know when you fix the location and I will be happy to review and provide photos.

This is definitely worth seeing, but not for the claustrophobic. Bring warm clothes and sturdy hiking shoes. This is not a place for shorts and flip-flops. You may get to see some sleeping bats - very cute.
