About the Cave:

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 cave is a guided 40 minute tour, which includes the on-site Mineral and Fossil Museum and Nature Center. The tour ends with a climb of 36 steps back to the surface.
