There is a per-person fee charged for all visitors on cave tours, with the exception of children under five years of age.

Annual Passes do not cover cave tour fees. Senior and Access card holders are eligible for discounts, but these discounts apply to the card holder only and not the entire group.

Reservations are strongly recommended to ensure a tour. Spaces are limited and all tours sell out during peak season. Go to www.recreation.gov for reservations
