Kartchner Caverns State Park

Don't miss the chance to visit Kartchner Caverns. If you happen to be traveling I-10 turn south at Exit 302 (just west of Benson, AZ) and you'll reach the caverns in just 10 miles.

Kartchner Caverns State Park Entrance


Kartchner is a recently discovered "wet" limestone cavern. The formations here are still growing and they have been carefully protected. We've seen a lot of caves, but there are things here you'll never see anywhere else.

Kartchner Caverns are one of Arizona's few state parks, and there's a campground. See Southwest Camping Destinations for more information.

Unfortunately Kartchner doesn't allow cameras in the cave, but their website does have some good pictures.
