    Well, the draw to Carlsbad is the Caverns. There really isn't much else in this town, but with all the caves have to offer What else do you need?
    The Park has several great qualities and features. During the summer, the bats fly out of the cave in a feeding frenzy, thousand at a time, in the early eveings. This is weather dependent however. A certain must see.

    The main Cave is great, but I reommend taking the time to investigate some of the wild caves. This can be done by purchasing tickets at the park headquarters. I hiked through Slaughter cavern and it was absolutly beautiful!!

    This is the Natural Entrance to the caverns. You can either hike down this way, or take an elevator from the visitor center.
