WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, SD – Limited cave tours are being offered at Wind Cave National Park due to elevator problems. All tours will now enter and exit the cave via the Walk-in Entrance and proceed only as far as the Post Office Room. Visitors will need to descend and climb up 155 stairs, which is equivalent to climbing a 15-story building.

Tour times remain the same, leaving the visitor center at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. but only Monday through Friday. There will be no tours on weekends and holidays. Tour sizes have been reduced from 40 people to 20 people on a tour.

It is unknown how long the elevators will be inoperable. For more information, contact the park at 605-745-4600 or follow us on Facebook.
