Cathedral Caverns

Cathedral Caverns State Park offers a magnificent tour of the underworld and some of Mother Nature’s beautiful formations.  The highlight of Cathedral Caverns is its massive entrance.  The huge opening measures 126 feet wide and 25 feet high, a possible world record for commercial caves.  The grand entrance is only the beginning.  Inside the cavern are some of the most beautiful formations Mother Nature has ever created including “Goliath”- one of the largest stalagmites in the world measuring 45 feet tall and 243 feet in circumference.   Cathedral Caverns features many amazing sites:  a "caveman" perched atop a flowstone wall, a "frozen" waterfall, a large stalagmite forest and a most improbable stone formation - a stalagmite that is 27 feet tall and 3 inches wide.
