Superintendent Andy Ferguson welcomes visitors to the Lehman Caves Visitor Center Thursday, October 27 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the park’s establishment in 1986. During the all-day open house there will be special displays. Light refreshments will be served at 10 a.m.

There are four scheduled tours of Lehman Caves at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. There are 20 spaces per tour. Advance ticket sales (no fee) will be taken until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26.

Campground fees will also be suspended for the night of October 27.
