It can get slippery when wet so it is best to wear shoes with good traction, hiking sticks, and gloves. I always like to bring a flashlight, so I can see in the caves and also take pictures with my phone instead of using it for light. There are 4 caves here to explore! Enjoy the privacy of visiting on a weekday or wander in the small crowd on the weekends. If you love to explore caves and the great outdoors, this is for you! Add Dames Cave to your road trip itinerary!
