“Not real pleased”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This cave was okay but nothing special. Our guide took off so quickly that it was hard to keep up or hear him. It had some Civil War history, but I think the mannikins that were put in there took away from the realness of it. It made it seem more like a set-up for tourists. I don't believe we would ever go here again or recommend it to others.

“Hidden gem. Don't miss this!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

I don't know how we found out about it originally, but this is one historical site we will visit again. This cave played a very big role in the civil war. If you are into history or even just into a beautiful cave and wonderful people, do not miss this. Good for kids 6 and up. My son (6) loved it. Also, the cave cat is super cool and might join you on your tour.

“Wild tour was a killer work out, yet very peaceful.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We originally had booked the Gypsum Tour. The website said some tight spaces. When we got there the owner told us it was almost entirely crawling. No thanks! So we ended up having to pay an extra ten bucks to do another tour, the overlook tour.

Troy guided us through the cave for what ended up being around 4 hours. He was great, he didn't feel the need to chat us up the whole time and make up stuff to fill the silence. The silence was amazing. It sounded like outside at night when snow is falling. There were some really cute little bats near the cave entrance. Don't let the website fool you, this is essential several hours of climbing, crawling, shimmying and rock hopping. We were so sore after, I had to limp to the hotel. They really need to be a bit more up front on the website. I don't think it accurately describes the tour. I would do it again though! It was a very unique experience.
