Do you do Caves?

Over the years of camping and vacationing, we've had the opportunity to explore a few caves.

I'm not a big fan of enclosed places, especially enclosed dark places.

But........................I will take one for the team, as it were, and follow the gang down into the ground. We went into one underground cavern that was filled with stalagmites and stalactites.

This cavern was located in Montana, called the Lewis and Clark Caverns.

There was lights mounted inside the cavern that made it a lot easier to see where you where walking, and what you were looking at.

The guided tour followed along about 2 miles of twisting trail thru stalagmites, stalactites and helictites.

I was really glad to get back out side where you can see blue skies and sunshine. 

The whole time we were following the guide, going deeper and deeper underground, all I could think of was..........


 It would be really dark down there.

There is a campground located near the caverns. The campground offers the following amenities:

  •  40 campsites
  • showers
  • dump station
  • restrooms

  1. i'm okay with grottos - ones where you can kinda keep an eye on daylight. but deep caves i don't think i could handle. claustrophobia would set in.
