Description

Alabaster Caverns State Park is home to one of the largest natural gypsum caves in the world. The cave's black alabaster is one of only three veins of its kind in the world, the other two being in Italy and China. For a fee, visitors can take a guided tour of the cave system between 9am-4pm. The tours are limited to 40 people and reservations are required to be made two weeks in advance. Five different species of bats can be found in the area's caverns.
