Special Features

Wind Cave National Park protects one of the longest, most complex maze-cave systems in the world, and contains an amazing amount of the rare cave formation called boxwork.. It is a great place to learn about the unique geology of the cave and to hear about the adventures of cave explorers as they actively search for more cave. However, if you only learn about the park through the cave, then you have missed half of what makes this park so special.
