Current River Cavern at Cave Spring Park

We are open for 2018!

All pets must remain in vehicle.

Current River Cavern is an 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 battery powered LED flashlights 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 4:15 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 multiple zip lines, gem and fossil panning and a quarry dig.

Cave tours: $12. Group discounts offered for school, church and Scout field trips.
