    Other reviews have trashed this place but it is a nice little campground in the desert. It is $30 a night and has full hook-up and good Wi-Fi. The campground is on the road to the caverns which is 7 miles away.

    ... there is one cave you can't go into that is 120 miles long! And there are over 112 different caves in the system. The tour of the cavern is self-guided and takes between 3-4 hours. The main chambers of the cavern are 750 feet below the surface and you can take an elevator or walk down to the main chambers.

    ... seen online I was expecting something more spectacular. There were a lot of bats but not the big black cloud of bats like some of the photos I’d seen. After a little while we decide to make a move. In the van back to camp Joanna says, "well, that was disappointing, that we didn’t see any bats." Confused, someone asks her what she means. “Well you know it was just all those birds flying out.” Bless her, the whole time we’d been sat ...
