“A different kind of cavern”

Alabaster Caverns State Park
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Freedom
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I have never been to a cavern that wasn't a limestone type. This cavern has been carved out of alabaster rock. There are not stalagmites, just giant boulders that have fallen from the ceiling. Someday this cavern will collapse onto itself and all that will be left is a canyon. Very interesting to see it.

A long drive from OK City but if you like caves, this one is for you. Combine this site with the salt flats just east of there and you have a full day. Tours are on the hour so if you get there at 10 minutes after the hour you will wait 50 minutes.....and there is nothing to do while waiting.

We drove out to the cave since we're both Okies and have never been. We were the last tour if the day, which allowed our guide to take extra time and a larger group than normal through the cave. She did a wonderful job pointing out all of the features of the cave and worked with our group on a very intimate personal level that made our trip through the cavern one that was well worth the trip. We highly recommend the trip if you're passing through. It's a great way to leave the beaten path and great for the kids too.

The park also has hookups for campers and tent sites too. I wouldn't recommend the tent in the summer heat, but the park is very quaint and well equipped for any adventurer.

This review is just for the wild caving at Alabaster Caverns. Some rules for wild caving: register at the office. at least 3 people, each person to have hard hat, long sleeves, water, 3 light sources. (There may be other rules.) The office will give you maps of the caves. Plan on an adventure. You'll get VERY dirty. (see pictures!) We did 2 caves on day 1 and 2 other caves on day 2. I think there are 5 that you can go through. There were places that were pretty tight for me to get through. I'm 5'9" and 175 lbs. There is some physical exertion to climb up some of the areas. We has a blast! It is a challenging trip through some areas. You'll find some fairly large rooms and unique rock formations. There are lots of areas that are single file; you can't pass by another person. If you think you may get claustrophobic, be the last one in your group; you know you can always go back the way you came. Or, you may want to skip this trip.

On a tour of Northwest Oklahoma one choice was the Alabaster Caverns. We arrived just in time (15 min early) for the noon tour. We were the only ones to go at this time but there were Boy Scouts scheduled while we waited. Nice camping area and picnic area. I did think the $10 pp was a little high for an adult. The cave was really cool and our guide was well learned about the cave.
