Raccoon Mountain Caverns

Raccoon Mountain Caverns is Tennessee’s highest rated cave and is located just outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. We invite you to tour our vast cave system, pan for gemstones, enjoy the thrill of a go-kart ride, or relax by a camp fire while taking in the spectacular views of both Lookout Mountain and Raccoon Mountain. We are especially proud of our vast cave system that is nationally recognized and is known for its incredible array of diverse, 100% natural cave formations. It is, quite simply, one of the most beautiful caves that you will ever see and is rated as one of the top ten caves in this country. The cave is open daily, rain or shine, except for Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day. Our cave system consists of over 5 1/2 miles of explored and mapped passageways with new discoveries still being made. Visitors can choose from either a 45-minute, come-as-you-are walking tour known as the Crystal Palace Tour or from one of our famous wild cave expeditions. The cave is open every day, rain or shine, except Thanksgiving and Christmas, and is naturally maintained at a comfortable sixty degrees by Mother Nature.
