Lost River Cave & ZiplineVisit Website
Open seven days a week. Boat tours take place between 10am-4pm, and the gift shop is open from 9am-5pm.
Kentucky’s only Underground Cave Boat Tour awaits you at Lost River Cave. Come explore and discover this Kentucky natural wonder! Health and safety protocols are in place to keep staff and guests protected.
Explore! Daylight disappears from view as you board the boat on the river that Ripley’s Believe it or Not claims is the shortest and deepest in the world. The guided tour begins along the river’s edge with stories of Native Americans, Civil War troops, and the notorious Jesse James. The cave sometimes floods, and when that happens, take the Historic Valley Walking Tour, available March through November if the cave boat tour is canceled.
Soar! When health guidance deems it safe again, The Flying Squirrel Zipline will have you flying through the treetops and zipping over the valley’s largest blue hole surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. LRC's professional guides will lead you on an exhilarating 3-zip adventure.
Discover! The seasonal Butterfly Habitat, nature trails, picnic areas, and a favorite children's activity, the gemstone sluice. Wildflower Gifts offers apparel, home decor, collectibles, jewelry, Kentucky food products, fossils, and more.
Just looking to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air? Enjoy the valley's blue hole trails at no charge by simply checking in at the Visitor Center to let them know you're there. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the valley.
Open year round, 7 days a week. Walk-in visitors are always welcome, or you can reserve your spot on the Underground Boat Tour (daily) or Zipline (available again beginning late May, 2021) on the Lost River Cave website.
