“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 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.
Great stop for a family with kids. There's a hike to get to the cave, plus a few hours inside the cave, so prepare yourself and your children. The campsite was nice. Definitely worth the trip.
I took my two kids (ages 4 and 9) on the cave tour that lasted 2 hours. The caverns are really neat and worth the trip, but the tour is definitely long. It starts with a 3/4 mile uphill walk, and if you aren’t used to the elevation, I’d recommend doing the easier tour. My kids managed the hike to the start of the tour, but about halfway through the tour, they’d seen enough and they started to lose interest. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and layers.
Get place to stop and just enjoy the great outdoors. We will come back
Beautiful and well maintained! Watch your head!! Otherwise an amazing experience! Glad we did it
Loving this app
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!!!
