We have been to Townsend , TN many times . It was kinda rainy the past few days so we decided to go. This place looks very basic once you arrive, when you pull up you may think that this is not going to offer much. But below that building is the entrance to one of the most spectacular rock formations and underground river with waterfall that you will get the chance to see. It's absolutely stunning.
There are steps and handrails throughout the cave, and enough lighting to see.The light show in the big room was fun, highlighting the different structures, and experiencing what a cave is like with all the lights off was another level of darkness. Most people should be able to do the tour, it is not too strenuous and there are a couple of breaks and places to sit. The tour last about an hour and a half or two.
I thought this was a fantastic experience. We're looking forward to checking out other caves now that I know they are all a bit different. If you are in the area and looking for something fun to do, this a place you should definitely stop and see.
