Interesting! Educational! Fun!

The slow processes of nature have been developing the cave near McGregor for centuries and centuries, but it was opened suddenly by man. Early settlers of Clayton County often referred to the strange noises coming from a hole at the base of the hill along Bloody Run Creek, but it took Gerald Mielke to make the discovery of nature's handiwork. These beauties are now available to the public.

Enjoy a Guided Boat Tour

On a boat ride through Spook Cave, our tour guides tell about the discovery and development of the cave. Formations are also pointed out and described. There is no walking involved though low areas in parts of the cave require extensive bending. The tour is underground and out of the weather where the temperature is always 47°F.
