First, choose your cave tour, then add an outdoor activity for aboveground fun! Mild to wild, there’s plenty to choose from for all members of your family!
Moaning Caverns is home to the largest single cave chamber in California. On this family friendly tour you’ll discover the Spiral Chamber which decends into the marble deposit of the Calaveras Formation over 165 feet before funneling into smaller passageways. Visitors may view the cavern’s main chamber by walking and climbing the narrow wooden staircase to a flat platform 65 feet underground. For the truly athletic and adventurous, from there, a ten story spiral staircase leads down to a second platform at the base of the chamber.
Expedition Crawling & Spelunking Tour
Our Expedition Tour is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. THIS IS NOT AN EASY, WALKING TOUR! Most areas are undeveloped, so there are no lights, stairs, or walkways. Instead, visitors daringly explore by climbing and belly crawling with lighted helmets to show the way!

Temporarily closed. Hang on to your helmet! Get ready to take to the skies on our Racing Zip Lines. We offer two types of zipping, regular seated style and tandem zipping.

Everyone is guaranteed to find some! Panning for sluice is fun for the whole family, and kids get a kick out of finding their own souvenirs to bring home.
