Home to one of the largest gypsum caves in the world, Alabaster Caverns offers an excellent opportunity to go spelunking (cave exploring). Tours of the cave are given daily. This site is over 200 million years old and home to five species of bats. A fun filled day is only 40 minutes away.
The highlight of this 200 acre park is the ¾ mile cavern formed of alabaster, a rare form of gypsum, making it the largest natural gypsum cave in the world that is open to the public. Daily guided tours of the cave are available on the hour from 9 am.-4 pm. For safety reasons, each tour has a maximum number of visitors who can be accommodated. A fee is charged. The cavern recently underwent an extensive lighting overhaul.
Group tour reservations are required at least two weeks in advance. The park also features RV and other camping areas. Hiking trails, picnic areas, group shelters with electricity, grills, water, a horseshoe pit, and a volleyball court are available at the park. Wild caving is a unique adventure also available at the park.
