Natural Entrance Tour

Wind Cave National Park Tours

Wind Cave’s largest natural opening is the reason for the cave’s namesake wind and has attracted visitors since time immemorial. Learn about the opening’s sacred connection in Lakota culture and view abundant boxwork formations along the tour route. This 1.25-hour tour enters via a walk-in entrance and encounters 300 stairs before exiting via elevator. The 0.6-mile tour is considered moderate due to the many flights of steep stairs upon entering the cave. Suitable for most families with young children.

Additional tours and times are available for same-day ticket sales at the park visitor center. Visit the Guided Tours page of the park website for a current schedule.
