June 22 Best workout! by LSU Fan Mom
June 8, 2013-My family and I planned a camping trip around spelunking, or at least the city dwellers version of spelunking, which just means visiting caves. We spent a week camping out at various primitive camp grounds, and going on numerous cave tours. Rickwood caverns gets 5 stars! The tour guide was absolutely wonderful, Alabama Fan Bat Man, was a hoot! I think the family enjoyed the guide as much as the cave! The cave itself was awesome, and really felt like we were spelunking. The stairs were a doosie, but I would do it again, and again!

I was probably 12-14 years old when I last visited Rickwood Caverns. I think the admission price back then was about 75 cents.. of course that has been over 40 years ago. I recall the blind cave fish, the pools in the caverns, and the swimming pool being fed from the cave water. I hope to have a family gathering there when the weather warms a bit. Now I have grand children who need this experience. I visited there with the cub scouts and again with our Sunday school class. It was a popular church wide outing.
September 28 Fall Family Outing by The Crowe, Chase and Carters
Our family went a couple of years ago and we are planning to come back in October. We had a blast then and look forward to another great time. Our kids are older now and we have added a few to the group so i know the younger ones will enjoy it as much as the older. See you soon!!!!!

July 11 First visit for my kids!
I went a lot as child. The last time I went I was in 10th grade. We went for an afternoon of swimming and while the pool is Nice and big, my son was disappointed. he is 3 and just learned how to swim and I didnt want him jumping of the diving board without a life jacket and they refused to let him. Broke his heart! My daughter on the other hand had a great time and is bugging me to take her back. The guy life guard that was there the day we went was very rude and would prefer not go if he would be there again!
July 28 A Great Day Trip by Stef
I took my 2 sons to spend the day at Rickwood Caverns as a side stop on the way home from a short vacation. They loved the cave tour and continue to talk about it. Afterwards we swam in the pool which is water pumped from the cave. They thought that was really neat. The pool was great. We hope to visit again some day. It was a pleasant trip.

May 27 Pests at the Park by Beth
I took my 2 boys in 2007. We camped in our tent. The tour was acceptable, but the boys seemed to know more than the guide. However, we had just come from Mammoth Cave in KY and they really got into the tour there. We had big problems with ants and raccoons. The raccoons kept the boys up all night, as they were afraid that we would be invaded. The ants were terrible! While they loved the pool, neither were pleased with the ant bites about everywhere we stood or sat. The ants got all over our towels from the chairs. I wish this had not been such a problem. However, to please my sons, I would make a return trip. I will just make sure to bring a lot of ant killer and park as far from the trash cans as I could.
