Explore Rickwood Caverns
Experience the thrill of Rickwood's miracle mile
of underground caverns! The 260 million-year-old limestone formations,
blind cave fish and underground pool are just a few of the natural
wonders exhibited in the colorful cavern.
The park features an Olympic-size swimming pool,
snack bar, picnic area, large and small picnic shelter, hiking trails,
playground, campground and gift shop.
Rickwood Caverns is a recognized member of the
National Caves Association, and offers more than a mile of living
geology. The caverns themselves were water-formed during the
Mississippian period over 260 million years ago. Rickwood Caverns
still contains active "living formations," as mineral-laden
water droplets build colorful structures and flowstones.
Rickwood Cave reveals that it was carved from an
ocean bed - shell fragments and fossils of marine life are clearly
visible along the cavern ceiling and walls.
Many curiosities are featured on guided tours of
the "miracle mile" at Rickwood Caverns State Park.
