Gap Cave Tours (formerly known as Cudjo's Cave)
Alert! A disorder known as White-Nose Syndrome is killing hundreds of thousands of bats throughout the eastern United States and has been found in park caves. Evidence suggests that the fungus that causes the disorder may possibly be spread by humans who venture into different caves. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing that have not been in other caves or footwear and clothing that have been properly decontaminated. more...
