What is there to do?

If you had to guess where the largest natural gypsum cave was in the whole world that is open to the public - where would you guess? if you guessed the Alabaster Caverns in Oklahoma, you'd be right!

This amazing cavern is located in the 200 acre Alabaster Caverns State Park, and is formed of alabaster, which is a rare form of gypsum.  It also happens to be the ONLY gypsum show cave in the entire USA. Now THAT is worth visiting for!

This unique cavern is actually 3/4 mile long, and the only way to explore it is through the guided tours. These tours allow a maximum of 40 visitors a year, and this gets you a guide to explain all the amazing wonders you are seeing, led by a well lit path.

The tour does involve quite a strenuous walk for the 3/4 mile, and it will take you up and down 330 stair steps, so make sure you are prepared. The cave is natural, and of course underground, so be prepared for the cool and damp atmosphere. The path at times is uneven, and sometimes a steep incline too.

After 45 minutes you will be done! But you will be so glad you explored this incredible natural wonder.

The park itself also features 11 RV sites that can be reserved, and 12 tent sites that are on a first come, first serve basis. Perfect if you wanted to extend your family day out even more.

Also in the area are beautiful hiking trails, a volleyball court, picnic areas and the chance to enjoy wild camping - an experience that should be enjoyed once in a lifetime!

Explore the unique, three quarter mile Alabaster Cave: the largest natural gypsum cave in the world open to the public, with the benefits of a recent lighting overhaul.

Options and events include daily guided cave tours, lantern tours, the Bat Wing Ding, Wild Caving and Camping. Camp and RV ground offers full hook ups, children's playground, picnic area and more.

Wild caving is also an option too! An amazing experience between April and September!
