Eagle Cave (January)
Eagle Cave is the largest onyx cave in Wisconsin, and Troop 494 has been a regular visitor to the cave since the early 2000's! There's no other place where you can get really muddy and have a lot of fun at the same time -- you even get to sleep inside the cave, too! The cave has over 3,000 feet of subterranean tunnels that can be explored. Sometimes the staff hides objects inside the cave, and Scouts can win prizes if they're lucky enough to find them!
Scouts who have visited Eagle Cave have also taken part in night hikes conducted by the staff, scavenger hunts for 'golden nuggets,' and sledding. There's also an arcade room and trading post at the top of the hill adjacent to the cave.
The staff at Eagle Cave put together a really great dinner on Saturday night, with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn. After that, everyone comes together for a few rounds of BINGO. Overall, Eagle Cave is a great place to go whether you're a first-time visitor or a seasoned spelunker!
