Boats without motors are allowed in the non-swimming area of the lake. Facilities include tables and charcoal grills in grassy shaded areas, restrooms with running water, showers, and flush toilets.

Grand Caverns

Grand Caverns

America’s oldest show cave, Grand Caverns offers a breathtaking panorama of subterranean beauty. These caverns were rated #2 in the nation by Parade magazine’s science editor on various physical aspects, such as room size, paths, and ratio of growing formations to dormant formations, as well as overall beauty. The Rainbow Room showcases the caverns with colored lights. Grand Caverns is a stately and powerful example of nature’s handiwork. Gigantic stalactites point down from above. Equally imposing stalagmites thrust upward from the caverns floor. Cathedral Hall, 280 feet long and over 70 feet high, is one of the largest rooms of any cavern in the East. Massive columns, beautiful draperies rippling flowstone, and rare “shield” formations create a variety of fascinating sights. The famous Bridal Veil, Stonewall Jackson’s Horse, and a peek at Dante’s Inferno provide memories too good to miss.
