Open All Year
The two caves
operated by the
Service -- Wind
Cave and Jewel

others are seasonal.
| The Black Hills
are home to literally hundreds of caves of which
seven natural caves are open for tours. Each of
the caves listed here has it's own page. You can
follow links by clicking on the blue type.
We also list three caves that
are no longer open to the public. We've done this

Internet referencing the closed caves as still
active. Sadly, for those who enjoy caves,
all three have closed since 2007.
