    Entrance to the cavern 4 more images

    by thecatsmeow Updated Apr 4, 2011

    While visiting with relatives in Woodward I was able to take a trip to this beautiful State Park and go into the caverns. I definately recomend it. Although at the time I was more able bodied. Unfortunately the cavern is not handicap accessible. Though the cave tour is not accessible, there is a video of the tour available in the Visitor Center If you can make it into the cavern it is certainly a beauty. According to the info on the park web site they have recently gone through and totally redone the lighting inside. Alabaster Caverns is the nation’s largest publicly held gypsum cave which is open to visitors. It is ¾ of a mile long and descends several hundred feet below the earth’s surface. Nature began creating Alabaster Caverns some 200 million years ago when the area was covered by an inland sea. The history of the Old West is alive in the Freedom area, and the caves served as hide-outs for outlaws prior to settlement. Today, guided tours are conducted daily and thousands of visitors can view massive boulders of alabaster and selenite as they wind their way through the cave. The average temperature in the caverns is fifty degrees year-round.

    Cave Tour Fees
    $8.00 Adults, ages 13 to 62
    $6.00 Seniors, 62 and older
    $5.00 Children, ages 6-12
    Children under 5 admitted free.
    The park also has camping and other features. You can even go get a permit and do some wild caving.
