On the hottest summer days, the Caves are cool. For your comfort, take a light sweater. There is a set of stairs leading you into the Caves and one that takes you out of the Caves. A beautiful trail that passes a sink hole will bring you back. Low-heeled shoes are required.
We certainly allow photography. The white waters of the waterfall are a fine subject for movie fans and artists. Although not necessary, if you have a flashlight bring it along to get an extra close look at the walls and the fossils that are everywhere underground.
Leashed pets are allowed in our picnic area and on our walking trails however not on the one hour guided tours underground.
The cave system is not stroller friendly. Visiting with infants is best done using a snuggly or backpack carrier.
Picnic tables are provided for the use of visitors. Soft Drinks, ice cream, snacks, souvenirs and science type products are available. Due to the environmental sensitivity of our site, we have upgraded outhouses and hand pump to wash your hands.
