Many people think the beauty of nature stops on the surface when in reality, some of the most beautiful parts of the world can be found underground. Underground caverns in Oklahoma prove just that, and there's one in particular that will really blow you away with how amazing it is. Why go hiking above ground, when the chances of running into crystals underground are much, much higher?
Alabaster Caverns State Park is located in Freedom, Oklahoma, and is open to the public seven days a week.
You can stop by from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on any day, with guided tours beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m.
The cavern tours include guided interpretation on a well-lit path through one of the largest natural gypsum caves in the entire world.
Gypsum, for those who don't know, is a mineral found in crystals and rocks, and the fact that the cave has as much as it does and is open to the public is rare.
In fact, it's the only gypsum show cave in the entire United States.
Wild caving, or spelunking, is offered here as well. There are four caves at Alabaster that are maintained especially for this, and range in length from 550 to 1,600 feet.
You'll definitely want to bring the right gear for something like this! Wild caving is wild, after all.
We recommend checking the cavern's website to learn the latest on making reservations for a tour at some of the coolest caverns in all of Oklahoma.
Adventure awaits you under the earth!
