Daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; off season by appointment.

Current River Cavern is a relatively small but extremely well decorated cave with a wide variety of natural formations. A natural stream flows beneath the boardwalk, and a small waterfall can be seen from a side passage after heavy rains. The temperature inside is a constant 58 degrees Fahrenheit year-round.

We use remote-controlled, battery powered LED lights that give off a restricted light spectrum that does not disturb the cave life or promote algae growth (which can damage formations).

The last tour starts at 4:30 p.m. Guided 40 minute tours, include the on-site Mineral and Fossil Museum and Nature Center. The tour ends with a climb of 36 steps back to the surface.

Cave Spring Park offers a number of activities, including a zip line, gem and fossil panning, or a quarry dig.

Cave tours: $12. Group discounts offered.

Open May thru September.
