    Question Southern Indiana Caves?

    Anyone familiar with these? Someone told me that there are some caves in the southern-most part of Indiana where you can take a boat trip through the underground stream.

    We're headed to the Creation Museum in Ohio later this month and I wanted to stop at the caves on the way home.

    We'll be camping. Any information on camping and the caves is greatly appreciated!

    Google Merango cave and Squire Boones Caverns. I know there are a few more but these are the two names I can thhink of off the top of my head. Squire Boone's is on the smaller side so I don't think there is a boat ride there. I don't remeber much about Merango. I know there are other caves too. I think the Crystal Onyx cave might be in Indiana.

    If your really looking for a great cave experience though Mammoth Cave is about an hour and a half down I65 in Kentucky. I think its still being billed as the longest mapped cave in the world. You need reservations to assure yourself of a spot though. It draws crowds all year.

    We're heading for Mammoth Caves now! Hubby & I were there BK (before kids). We weren't sure if we had the time to do it, but made the adjustments in our schedule. Looking forward to it!
