These items cannot go inside of the cave.
- Flashlights. The cave is lit and rangers carry flashlights.
- Backpacks, large purses and tripods. These are not permitted in the cave due to low ceilings and narrow passageways. Leave them in your car or check them in at the visitor center.
- Anything worn or used in a cave or mine east of the Rocky Mountains or a cave or mine in Europe. As of March 2011, this measure is in place to prevent the spread of the fungus linked to white-nose syndrome, a fatal disease in bats.
- Your pet. If you can, leave your pets at home. If you are traveling with your pet, bear in mind that the shade will move while you are inside the cave, and shade is limited.
