This is a great stop on the drive between Louisville and Indy. Just a little out of the way and the tour won't add too much to your day. The guides are well informed about cave structures and the history of the cave. Our guide told us she had only been working for 3 weeks but she handled the questions from our group with ease. I so wish I had written down her name as well because she was fantastic with our kids. My youngest was upset because the goats at the petting farm wouldn't come close enough for him to touch and she took the time to talk to him and try to help which was awesome.

Squire Boon Caverns was a great experience. We like to visit any cave that we can and this one hits the mark very well. It has been one of the better ones with all that it has to offer. The guides were informative and friendly. There are added activities to do on ground level as well. This was a great family getaway.

Squire Boone was a fun place to visit. It's worth the drive and time. It's a fun and affordable family trip. The tour guide have us a very informative tour. The caverns are just beautiful! The shops around are a bit run down and probably have seen their hayday in the 80's probably. The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Squire Boone Caverns is place that I frequently traveled to on field trips in school. I recently visited again with a couple out-of-town friends. We enjoyed our tour! The cave has some stunning caverns, waterfalls, and formations with well-lit paths. It's also a nice, cool place to visit during the hot summer months. And at the end of the tour, you come right out of the cave and straight into the gift shop, which is rather cool! However, if you have any difficulties climbing stairs, brace yourself for the winding spiral staircase you have to climb in order to exit the cave at the end. I was a little disappointed that the tour wasn't as long as I remembered, but I found out later that a section of the cave had been closed off since my elementary school days.
