About

Surprisingly enough, Kartchner Caverns were not discovered until the 1970s. In 1974, when two cave finders discovered a sinkhole in the ground. They went to the bottom of the sinkhole to find an entrance into a large cave system.

After their discovery the state of Arizona opened the caverns to the public for tours. Since then it has became a state park and expanded to include hiking trail and overnight lodging.
