Alabaster Cave tour takes you through a one of a kind cave. The highlight of the 200-acre Alabaster Caverns State Park is the 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 and the only gypsum show cave in the United States. Daily guided tours of Alabaster Cavern leave promptly on the hour from 9am-4pm. For safety reasons, a maximum of 40 visitors are allowed on each tour. A fee is charged for the tour. The cavern tour includes interpretation by a guide and a well-lit path. Group tour rates are available for school and youth groups only and only after a reservation has been made and a confirmation number been issued. Group reservations are required at least two weeks in advance by calling the park office.

Nice cave that is worth a stop if you're in the area. Somewhat of a short tour. However, the guided tour is just a small piece of a much larger caving system that can be explored unguided with the right equipment. 3 stars is just for the guided tour.

it was fun. We enjoyed the names of the rock formations. They let us go off the trail for a very short detour.

There is a short guided tour, but the best way to explore the area is in any of the three unguided caves with hard hats and flashlights. (You must have both!) There is a lot of crawling and climbing about the caves. You will also get muddy - I threw away the clothes I wore to explore.

Unique cave, not spectacular. Would do again to camp in the cave. An Option by reservation.
