Crystal Cave Reviews & Ratings
Thank you David for giving us a great experience in entering our tour today!! We had a wonder time and Mr. K for being a fantastic tour guide! My sailor girl is visiting from Norfolk, Virginia and loved the cave.. thanks again for letting us in.
Enjoyed the tour! Lot of interesting information to take in and cool cave features to see. Place is worth visiting if you are in Sequoia National Park or Kings Canyon National Park. We almost gave up on looking for tickets after checking online a week in advance - everything was booked few months in advance. Luckily we managed to get tickets at Lodgepole Visitors Center.
Beautiful cave, the guided tour was really good! Also for smaller kids Tip 1: bring a flash light and warm clothes (a sweater will do) Tip 2: this is about purchasing the entrance tickets. Buy online, at least 2 days prior to your visit. The website isn’t very clear in how to get your ticket, but if you show your confirmation email at the book store (located at the start of the tour) they will hand you paper tickets. You might want to screenshot that email - in case your email won’t load. (you won’t have phone reception up there) Tip 3: no backpacks allowed inside the Cave, so pack and plan your stuff accordingly
Very cool! I purchased the tickets in April for this weekend's visit. I never received the tickets after purchasing online (only a single e-mail, but you need to show the e-mail receipt showing the purchase) so I had to call the toll free number, they sent me another message, and she added the tickets would be available at the visitor's center, which was incorrect. You can also pay for tickets at the visitor's center (it's better to buy in advance online), but the actual tickets are give to you by the official in the parking lot at Crystal Cave. We did the 50-minute tour, which was good enough for the family. The road up Highway 198 wasn't too busy, you need to arrive at least 40 minutes prior to your time. You do not need the shuttle for the cave tour, you do for the Moro Rock visit. It's a 20-minute drive down to the cave's parking lot from the highway (go slow because traffic is going the other way too). The cave tour itself was very cool, the guide was funny and was informative. It's a 10-minute walk down to the cave's entrance over a couple of small, fast-moving rivers. Going back to the parking lot is much more strenuous. Bring plenty of water, but be aware that backpacks, bags, anything not attached to you must remain at the cave's entrance.
Absolutely beautiful! Took my fiance kid's and little sister on our way back from TN and it was well worth the stop. I've been to cave tours before in other states but Crystal Onyx Caves have great prices for a tour of something so remarkable. Highly recommend anybody who hasn't been before.
