Group Wild Cave Expeditions

Raccoon Mountain Caverns is the recognized leader in scout caving expeditions in the South! We also welcome all types of organized groups, including schools, summer camps, youth groups, and adventure clubs. Our wild cave expeditions are especially popular with scout and youth groups because caving is a perfect non-competitive team activity that builds self-confidence. Your guide will move the group at the speed of the slowest member but will be pushing to finish the tour in the allotted time. 

We offer qualified groups a reduced rate.  In order to qualify for these rates, you must pay as a group and have at least 15 participants or our standard rates will apply. Payment is due in full on the day of your tour.

Please note that the rates listed below do not include Tennessee sales tax. Tax exempt organizations must be able to provide a copy of their Tax Exemption Certificate or a Federal 501(c)3 at the time of booking in order to receive tax exempt status. Tax exempt organizations must pay all together as a group using a check or credit card in the name of the organization. No personal checks or credit cards are acceptable.

The following 3 tours are available to groups:

Canyon Crawl Expedition

This expedition is the least strenuous of our wild cave offerings and focuses on introducing participants to the activity of caving. This is the only expedition that bypasses "The Canyon" and therefore has no height requirement.

Duration: Approximately 2 hours

Requirements: All participants must be at least 6 years old

Price: Standard rate: $30/participant | Group rate: $25/participant

Fossil Crawl Expedition

This expedition is perfect for those looking for a slightly more intense tour and allows guests to see a variety of beautiful fossils contained within the rock walls of the cave.

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Requirements: All participants must be at least 8 years old and at least 56" tall

Price: Standard rate: $38/participant | Group rate: $30/participant

Echo Room Expedition

This is our most popular expedition and includes most of the Fossil Crawl Expedition plus some longer belly crawls, a trip to the aptly named Echo Room, a visit to the sandpaper slide, and passing through the famous 49-cent squeeze.

Duration: Approximately 3 hours

Requirements: All participants must be at least 8 years old and at least 56" tall

Price: Standard rate: $48/participant | Group rate: $38/participant
