Fodor's Review

The park's sole visitor center is the primary place to get general information. Located on top of the cave, it has three exhibit rooms, with displays on cave exploration, the Civilian Conservation Corps, park wildlife, and resource management. Other than vending machines, there's no coffee or snacks here or elsewhere in the park, so if you need your morning caffeine fix, pick up your coffee before entering the park.
