“Montana's first state park”
Camp, hike and experience amazing geologic wonders at Montana's first and best-known state park showcase of one of the most highly decorated limestone caverns in the Northwest. Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park features one of the largest known limestone caverns in the Northwest. These spectacular caverns lined with stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and helictites are naturally air-conditioned and lighted for a safe and enjoyable visit with a seasoned tour guide. Kids have fun on the tour's famous Beaver Slide and an occasional bat sighting! Summer tours of the caverns are available from May 1 - Sept. 30. Plan to spend about two hours to hike about two miles on the caverns' guided tour. Summer Cave Tours are $10 for adults (12 and up), $5 for children between the ages of 6 and 11, five and under are free. The park also features camping and trails to hike or bike, a brand new visitor center, interpretive displays, a gift shop, food and beverage concessions, amphitheater, and ranger/interpretive programs presented during the summer months. The park has a large campground with 40 campsites, a tipi and three cabins.
A natural wonder that is totally worth the trek up the hillside to the entrance. Our tour guide was informative and engaging. The caves themselves were a sight to behold. Maybe bring a light jacket because the caverns can be a little cold. Overall it was an amazing experience.
Definitely worth the stop. I would go again.
Amazing sights... Must see
What a great place to stop. Very nice campground, and a wonderful cavern tour. Staff was very friendly. The cave even had a natural slide!!!
A must see. We camped at the RV park at the base of the hill. Drive 3 miles up to the visitor center that also houses a restaurant and gift shop. The guided tour takes 2 hours and you will need good walking shoes and a light jacket as it does get chilly. It's a lot of walking. Uphill and down stairs so keep that in mind. You won't need a head lamp. We loved it! We saw bats sleeping at the entrance which was an added bonus.
We stayed only one night on a cross-country road trip. It was a great stop along the way, even though we missed out on the cave tour. It was windy but our popup did fine. Only 4 stars because of the coin-operated showers. The playground was a highlight and the small trails from the campsites into the hills, as well as the drive along the cannon and river - were breathtaking ways to take in the scenery.
What a beautiful place! Everyone should come here at least once in their life. Had a great guide be prepared for a long hike bring water
