What Our Visitors are Saying!

This was my first caving experience. Chief was amazing! His knowledge about the cave makes the experience very intriguing.

The rocks and caves looked spectacular! The formations are very unique. This is truly an awesome experience and I would recommend it for everyone.

I feel very honored to have had the experience and that Chief was my guide.

This has been my second time visiting this place. Noticing all the difference from the first time is phenomenal.

We visited Sam’s Hole this time and the energy and aura that radiates from that location is different from anything else I have ever felt. Going into the cave for the second time is just as amazing as the first.

This place is truly magical and you should consider yourself lucky if you get to experience this place.

My first visit, so spectacular.

I have never been in a cave before. Once in a lifetime experience, very fortunate to have this experience,

Thank You Jay!

Thank you Jay.

What a magical place this is and how kind you are to share it! There appears to be a vortex of unique energy ever-present in this area – both as above and below. It is palpable.

The cave and it’s history are interesting, but the wooded area surrounding the bunk house, the birds, the animals, flowers, grass, and trees share a sacred connection with it all.

It is both my privilege and honor to have shared time here.

Mr. Jay was very informative about the history of this place. It is very interesting and amazing how this place came to be.

The tour was very shocking when we came to a 2,000 pound door and looked in. The ramp going down just set our minds racing what could be behind the second door.

When we looked in it was so amazing to see all the work that took place in the cave.

Jay did a great job as a tour guide and we have never seen anything like this place. It would be great if everyone could see it.

Thanks Jay!
