Here are a few answers to Frequently Asked Questions...
Are the caverns handicap accessible?
Stark Caverns are partially handicap accessible. Daily tours are one-hour long and require you to walk approximately three-fourths of a mile. Wheelchairs can manage 85% of the pathways in the caverns. The other 15% are at the far end of the caverns and there are waiting areas.
How long does it take to visit the caverns?
The daily tour is approximately one-hour long. We welcome you to stay longer and enjoy our Visitor's Center. Pan for gems or fossils at our sluice, crack open a geode, shop for unique souvenirs and gifts, walk the grounds or enjoy a picnic in one of our two picnic areas.
Can I bring my pet?
No. The only pets allowed in the buildings are service animals. Please plan accordingly and never leave your pets in a hot vehicle.
What should I wear for my tour?
Wear comfortable clothing such as jeans or shorts and a t-shirt, and close-toed shoes with good traction – tennis shoes or hiking boots are ideal. Bring a light jacket or sweater – the caverns are a constant 57-58 degrees year-round.
Can I take pictures in the caverns?
Yes. You can take pictures of everything except for the Native American Artifacts. We do ask that you not use a flash when photographing cave wildlife (like salamanders or crayfish), to avoid disturbing them.
Does the outside weather affect the caverns?
Stark Caverns is a constant 57-58 degrees year-round in the deepest part of our cavern, but heavy rain increases the water flow inside the caverns and increases your likelihood of getting dripped on (cavern kisses) during the tour. Our Ballroom (Area for events & camping) is located a few hundred feet from the large, open air entrance of our cave, which does affect the temperature of the cave during Winter months. Plan to dress warm or in layers when enjoying a cave tour in colder months. Snow doesn’t affect the interior of the caverns, but may make road conditions getting to the caverns unsafe. You may want to call the caverns before you visit if there are extreme weather conditions.
