Laurel Caverns

 
 

Laurel Caverns is the largest cave in Pennsylvania, with unusual formations to interest both avid spelunkers and casual visitors. . With 2.8 miles of passages, it is the 16th longest developed cave in the United States. Formerly called Dulaney's Cave and originally called Laurel Hill Cave, it has been explored since the late 1700's and was a lair in the olden days for Indians and robber gangs.

Laurel Caverns guided tour lasts about 55 minutes, with a guide leaving with a group at least every twenty minutes. Nobody waits more than twenty minutes for a guide. Reservations are not needed.

The cave temperature is 52 degrees year round, so a sweater or jacket should be worn. Non-slippery shoes are important. Laurel Caverns is a natural cave which follows the natural slope of the mountain. The tour may be strenuous for some.

Repelling classes are held by special arrangement. The fifty foot high Ed Coll cliff is inside the cave so weather is never a problem. All equipment is included in the fee.

Also avalable is panneing for gemstones and staff directed spelunking for groups of 6 or more.

Picnic tables, campgrounds, view from mountaintop, trackless train, and cave miniture golfing.
