During a overnight camping trip to Chenango Valley State park with some friends, we decided to take their guest from China to Howe Caverns & the Secret Caverns next door. About a 90 mile drive from the campground up I 88.

The Secret Cavern is less popular than Howe Cavern, smaller, and less expensive ($18.00 ve $25.00 for Howe Caverns). The lighting is more primative, mostly to provide adequate lighting to see where you are going, Narrower pathways, but in many ways just as interesting. The "special feature" for the cavern is the 100' waterfall at the end of the tour. Well worth seeing as long as you can deal with the over 100 steps to get into & out of the cave (no elevator like Howe Cavern).
