“Great Caves!!”

Our whole family of 7 loved this! We have kids ages 10 to 17. Our tour guide was very enjoyable. Lots to see and we'll worth it. A great gift shop as well!

“A little gem in Iowa”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I have been to many caves and was excited to learn Iowa had one to tour while walking. The guide was young but knowledgeable. I wanted to take more pictures but was at the front of the line and didn't want to hold everyone up. Neat that they turned a part that was destroyed by guests into a hands on spot, but please respect the caves!

“crystal lake cave”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

On a 90 degree day this was the perfect thing to do. We really enjoyed the tour and had a very knowledgeable guide. Wear tennis shoes since you will walk in water and bring a sweatshirt or jacket.
