DeSoto Caverns

Yes, all parking is free.

There is no entrance fee to the park grounds, except during special occasions such as festivals or events, so be sure to check our events page for their schedule. Tickets pricing for the cave and attractions is available on our tickets page. There is never any parking fee.

Yes, we encourage the use of photography and video in the cave!

No, we are a privately owned park that has stayed in the same family for over 100 years.

Yes, they are. Our cave has a tunnel, making it accessible for you and your young ones.

Yes, we are. We are proud to be one of the first caves to be handicap accessible throughout the entire tour! We now have a tunnel instead of stairs that leads into the caverns and there are no longer any areas of the cave where stairs are used. Because of the natural environment of the cave, some areas had to be steeply ramped and will require an additional helper to navigate. Warning: For cave visitors in a wheelchair, it is required that you bring a capable assistant to help you with navigating the steep portions of the cave.

We are open all holidays except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day.

Yes, pets are allowed in the park as long as they remain on a leash. Inside the cave we only allow pets if you are capable of holding them throughout the tour. People who bring their pets are responsible for cleaning up their pet's waste. People with pets also will be held responsible for any damage their pet creates. Because of the indoor-outdoors nature of a cave, we cannot have any animals using the restroom inside the caverns, so they must be small enough to be held through the entirety of the tour.

Yes, we offer hotdogs, pizza, chips, ice-cream, drinks, snack items, etc. in our Gift Shop. Be sure to try our award winning home-made fudge!

The temperature inside the cave is 60°F year-round. In the summer, it will be refreshingly cool, and in the winter it will be a comfortable warmer temperature. Because the entrance to our cave is a steep ramped tunnel we recommend wearing shoes with traction on the bottom, although there is a handrail for steadying yourself if your shoes are smooth on bottom.

It does not rain inside the cave. Although, because this cave is still growing you may experience getting dripped on occasionally. We like to call these occasional drips "cave kisses."

Yes, please feel free to check our family reunion tab, and if your group has 20 or more contact us to make a reservation at a special group rate!

Yes, we have a campground on the property.
