AAA Editor Notes
Crystal Lake Cave is 3 mi. s. on US 52 to 6684 Crystal Lake Cave Rd. On guided approximately 45-minute tours, visitors walk 1 mile on well-lit passages into this living cave, one of few to contain anthodites—a rare form of aragonite crystals known as “cave flowers.” The cavern, discovered by lead miners in 1868, features intricate formations and an underground lake. A gem mining sluice also is available.

A 90-minute Wild Cave tour that explores unexcavated passageways is offered to participants ages 10 and over by advance reservation. Warm clothing is recommended in the cave, which has a constant temperature of 52 degrees F.

Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
